Event Details

The Markel Corporate Run has it all!

Promote health in the workplace, build corporate pride, or just get outdoors with friends! Whether you join us at the Innsbrook Office Park or take part virtually, we invite you to run, walk, network, and have fun at the Markel Corporate Run on June 6!

Richmond’s Biggest Office Party

This event is a one-of-a-kind networking opportunity! Teams are treated to a pre-race warm-up before the 5k begins. Following the run or walk, individuals can head into the Hirschler Post Race Office Party to cash in their drink ticket for a complimentary beer or wine. To top it all off, a DJ is responsible for keeping the crowd pumped before, during, and after the 5k!

Can’t make it on June 6th? We have a Virtual 5k too!

It’s important to show up for your team and spend time with your coworkers (even if it’s virtual)! Run or walk a 5k between Thursday, June 1 and Thursday, June 30. Don’t forget to record and submit your time! Virtual participants will be mailed their packets the week of June 6 and will be scored separately from in-person participants.

Don’t have a team? You can register solo!

Whether you work solo or just don’t fancy captaining a team, that’s okay! You can join the Fit4Kids team and join forces with our official event charity, Greater Richmond Fit4Kids.


A little friendly-competition is good for the soul! Teams can compete for top honors in 12+ different industry categories. The top male, female, and coed team in each of the categories will earn bragging rights and will be featured in our Official Recap Email. Awards also go to the top male and female finisher and CEO Challenge winners. For teams less focused on finish times, give the Charity Cup Challenge a go! Learn more about the award categories and team scoring.
