The crisp air and vibrant colors of fall set the stage for the 5th Annual Rocketts Landing Cap Trail 10M & 5k presented by Dominion Energy on October 28, 2023. This signature fall-themed event invites both seasoned athletes and outdoor enthusiasts alike to traverse the picturesque Virginia Capital Trail and James River, offering breathtaking views of the water and surrounding landscapes. The paved, scenic course is separated from vehicle traffic and provides a rewarding experience for runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels.
The event features measured and marked courses, a start/finish line at Stone Brewing Tap Room, on-site packet pickup, touchless water stations, and chip-timed bibs. For runners seeking to challenge themselves, top finisher prizes and age group awards will be provided by Lucky Road Run Shop in both the 10-mile and 5k. A costume contest adds extra excitement, with fun prizes awarded for the best adult, children, and family/group costumes.
Early bird pricing is $37 for the 10-mile and $32 for the 5k before September 30. There is a race discount of $15 for participants under 20 and a $5 savings if you refer three or more friends.
All proceeds from this event support the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation's work to protect, promote, and enhance the Trail, and to serve as a resource, community builder, and connector to other trails throughout the Commonwealth. Check out VCTF's website for more information.
