Richmond Region Sports Events

Come here to play or just to cheer people on

A lot of people actually come here just to play sports. That’s probably because we’re home to events like the Richmond Marathon, which has been named America’s Friendliest Marathon. One of the most fun and popular 10K races in the U.S., the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10K, has nearly 40,000 runners - some in costume, all enjoying great live music – on a course along the only street in America listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Cap2Cap ride takes place on the Virginia Capital Trail and is a good time, no matter what your skill level. The Tacky Light Run in December and the Anthem Moonlight Ride in August keep you moving even after the sun goes down. And with Dominion Energy Riverrock, you can take part in the sporting action like kayaking, freestyle biking, boulder bashing and mud running. (They say it’s good for the complexion.)
