"Whether you’re in it to win it or just here for the party, the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k’s got it all! Named one of the best races in the country (thanks, USA Today!), Richmond’s biggest block party is the place to be come Saturday morning. With over 40,000 participants, you’re bound to be entertained – whether it’s by costumed runners , Spirit Groups, Party Stops, live music or that guy/gal out front dashing for the cash. Throw in a race for kiddies and a rockin’ post-race party, and you’ve got yourself one of the best social events of the year!" - from the Sportsbacker's website.
I'll be there volunteering at 7:30am for the kids' run, and will be there for the majority of the race, if not helping on the course.
