  • Assisted Participants

    The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler supports assisted participants. Be mindful that there will be assisted participants in strollers or modified wheelchairs on the course being pushed by a volunteer athlete. Please cheer them on and welcome them as they are an important part of our event.

    Assisted participants should contact the race director no later than 1 week prior to race day. Assisted participants will start at 7:55 a.m.

  • Baby Joggers/Strollers

    Due to the size and density of this event, and for the safety of our participants, 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 and Headphones

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

    Please be mindful of all other participants and respect the race personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.

    Smile! Our friends from Triduo will be on course to capture those special race moments. Within 48 hours after race day, participants will receive an email notifying them that their free pictures are ready to view and download.

  • Chronotrack B-Tag Timing System

    All participants will receive a Bib B-Tag for timing purposes. The B-Tag will be attached to the back of your race number. Please check to ensure that your B-Tag number matches your race number. Do Not remove your B-Tag from your race number. No Tag = No Time. Look for specific instructions at Packet Pickup.
