In 2016, 1,378 volunteers took part in making The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler a success.
The Genworth Virginia 10 Miler has become known for a tradition; “where hospitality meets the road”. Because of our volunteers, we continue to experience unprecedented growth with a reputation for excellence. This success would not be possible without the contribution of so many amazing volunteers!
Many of our corporate sponsors, charities and educational institutions go above and beyond their sponsorship by providing volunteers to assist with the many logistics involved with a race of this scale. Some of those partners include:
Genworth, Centra, Bank of The James, Areva, Rehab Associates of Central Virginia, Randolph College, Lynchburg College, Liberty University, Lynchburg Fire & Rescue, Lynchburg Police Department, Amateur Radio Club, CHAP’s, Girls on The Run, Miriam’s House, Amazement Square, plus many more churches, organizations, and individuals.
If you are part of an organization that would like to volunteer, please e-mail us.

Role with the 10 Miler
Started as a Medical Volunteer in 1989. Since 1990, I have been the Medical Director (26 years). Centra Health and the Lynchburg Family Medicine provide the supplies and volunteers. I organize the supplies, recruit the volunteers, as well as provide medical guidance in the race planning and on race day. Preparation starts months in advance. Over the years we have had the pleasure to ad the Virginia 4 Mile run and walk events and the Amazing Mile youth events.
What is your favorite part about race day?
My favorite part of race day is watching the runners at the back of the pack finish. They do not get the glory but they worked hard to get to the finish line. It is big accomplishment for many of them.
