Held at Richard Bland College, in Petersburg, this is a road course that is mostly flat. It's held in the evening and there are prerace runs for the kids and post race food and drinks. This year due to having to be at two places at once I didn't run but Tommy was able to get in on the action!

she doesn't want to go
The water for the kids to play in was from a fire truck....they raised their ladder and opened a hydrant and the kids just went crazy. It's freezing cold water but it doesn't stop the kids. The after race food is pizza and fresh melons. AWESOME! They even had some wine and adult beverages post race for the grown ups! It's really a great way to spend and evening!
