Marathon Jr.

It's back and better than ever!

Your favorite Halloween event that’s less spooky and more silly is back on October 30 at an all NEW location! The Marathon Jr. is the perfect opportunity for kids to celebrate fall and discover their inner-track star, all while giving their costume a test run! The 1-mile fun run will take kids around the Sports Backers Stadium track and The Diamond field! Before and after the race, your kiddos can enjoy mascots, games, crafts and more! It’s sure to be a boo-tiful morning!

The Marathon Jr. is part of the VCU Health Richmond Marathon—just happening two weeks earlier!
