Project Athena relay marathon approaching

Considering it’s being run on July 14th, it’s probably a good thing this isn’t an individual marathon. In the Richmond Relay Marathon, teams of 4 runners (all male, all female, or mixed) will each run a lap (approximately a 10K) along the James River for a cumulative team marathon time. The start and finish line will be at the very scenic and beautiful Brown’s Island, in the heart of downtownRichmond. All entry fees are a 100%, tax-deductible gift to the 501c3 Project Athena Foundation, and will be used to help several Richmond Survivors (of medical or traumatic setbacks) to live an adventurous dream as part of their recovery. 

Project Athena’s Founder and recent speaker at St. Christopher’s ‘Saintennial’ Leadership event, Robyn Benincasa, has set a goal to host 300+ teams and to honor 20 local Survivors at the start and finish lines. All Survivors receive free entry and training for the Richmond Relay Marathon and may also apply for a grant to participate in other Project Athena Adventures at www.projectathena.org.


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
