Go! Discover Richmond Event Details


We are happy to partner with the Civil War & Emancipation Day! The walk will begin at the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar (500 Tredegar St, Richmond, VA 23219).  


Parking is available at the Civil War Center in their paid lot or on street.

Please note:

  • Safety on the Course: The course is clearly marked with signs. However, please note that you are sharing the streets with vehicular traffic. Please obey all traffic laws. That means staying on sidewalks, crossing streets only at the crosswalks and paying close attention to traffic signals. Some major intersections will feature police officers directing traffic and event participants.
  • Course Time Limit: There is a 4-hour course time limit. That gives you plenty of time to walk the complete course, but it does limit any time you have to stop at the individual attractions.
  • Strollers, Joggers, Wagons and Backpacks: If you are using a stroller, baby jogger, wagon, backpack carrier, etc., to take children along the course, please be sure to sign the waiver for the child at packet pickup and receive your stroller tag. The tag must be attached in plain view on the stroller/jogger/ carrier, etc., before you are allowed on the course.
  • No dogs allowed. For the safety of all participants, dogs are not allowed in the event.
