Still time to enter Project Athena relay marathon

July 10, 2012 3:25pm

Project Athena is hosting the Richmond Relay Marathon and Merrell Mini Athena/Zeus Kidz Challenge on Brown’s Island this July 14th, and there’s still time to get a team together and sign up. I wrote about Project Athena in one of my T-D Outdoors columns a couple of weeks ago. One hundred percent of entry fees go to help survivors of all stripes — cancer, trauma, etc. — live their adventurous dreams. Click here for a look at the course.

If you’re a runner, chances are you’ll be running 6 miles at some point this weekend. Why not grab three of your running buddies and all do your run on the roads and trails along the river? Heck, if you’re really adventurous, you could do the relay marathon, then walk over to Belle Isle and take part in the James River Association‘s 2nd annual Splash and Dash.

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?
