Income Based Rates
At Sports Backers, our mission is to inspire people to live actively. Engaging underserved populations is one of our core values and one way we act on this value is by offering Income-based Rates to those who qualify and would otherwise not be able to participate.
Those who make $25,000 or less annually or receive proven TANF, Food Stamp or Energy Assistance Benefits from Social Services and are not currently claimed as a dependent by anyone making above $25,000 annually are eligible for the $35 half marathon and $15 5k rates. Please provide one of the following documents for verification:
- Verification/Eligibility letter from Social Services
- Tax return
For those that qualify for the income-based entry fee, please email your qualifying documents to [email protected] (make sure to blackout any sensitive information such as social security number), mail it to Sports Backers, 100 Avenue of Champions, Richmond, VA 23230, or come by our office (100 Avenue of Champions, Richmond, VA 23230) with your verification documents.
Packet pick-up will take place on Friday, May 5 from 4 -6pm (location TBA) and on Saturday, May 6 at New Kent Winery. See the event schedule for details. Note, participants must pick-up their packets within their designated distance window on race morning.
You may switch from the in-person event to the virtual event or from the half marathon to the 5k at no cost. 5kers who wish to switch to the half marathon will have to pay the difference in price from when they registered. If you would like to switch events please follow these steps: Sign into RunSignUp > Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Transfer Event > Choose New Event. If you have any issues you can email [email protected]. Switches will be allowed up until race morning unless your intended distance has reached capacity.
