Course

The course for the Virginia 10 Miler Relay is the same as the Genworth Virginia 10 Miler course. However, team participants are staged at two locations for the Virginia 10 Miler Relay. The first team member starts at E.C. Glass and the second team member begins their 5 mile leg inside Riverside Park and finishes at E.C. Glass.

 

The first team member proceeds north on Langhorne Road, downhill for 1.5 miles. After a short distance on Rivermont Terrace, runners turn east onto historic Rivermont Avenue to Riverside Park following the course clockwise through Riverside Park to the Exchange Zone at 5 miles.

 

After the exchange, the second team member continues through Riverside Park, exiting at Ash St., and proceeding on Rivermont Avenue, to Rivermont Terrance, then following Langhorne Road back to E.C. Glass High School.

POST RACE CELEBRATION

LIVE MUSIC ON THE COURSE

Live bands and music will be located throughout the courses for both races. Runners will be treated to more than 5 live bands and DJ’s. Neighborhood parties are also being organized on the course.

Baby Joggers/Strollers Policy

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.

Personal Music Devices/Headphone Policy

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.
