  • Can I promote my business at The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler?

    Race day promotional opportunities are reserved for official sponsors of the event. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please e-mail racedirector@virginia10miler.com.

  • Are strollers allowed at the event?

    Due to the size and density of this event, baby joggers and strollers are prohibited. The inclusion of strollers in races increases the potential for injury to race participants and children.

  • Can I wear headphones during my event?

    The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler and its associated events.

    We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line.

    Runner safety has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of other participants and respect personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
