RICHMOND, VA – The Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k presented by Kroger makes a highly-anticipated return to its traditional in-person event format on Saturday, April 23. The event is nearing its participant capacity of 20,000, with registration for the limited remaining spots available at www.sportsbackers.org.
This year’s event will be the first time it has been held in person since 2019, with virtual and hybrid versions of the event taking place in 2020 and 2021. The 10k marks its 23rd running in 2022, and over 550,000 participants have taken part in that time. The Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k will again serve as the Collegiate Running Association (CRA) 10k Road Race National Championship, with several thousand collegiate runners participating in the race and competing for $3,500 in prize money provided by the CRA to the top collegiate finishers.
