Richmond Multisports brings new half-marathon to town

November 21, 2012 12:06pm

Attention RVA distance runners. Big news from Richmond Multisports:

“Athletes in Central Virginia are lucky to have so many events to choose from… bike races, road races, muddy races, multi-sports events and on and on. The one spot on the calendar that was left alone has now been claimed by Richmond Multisports and the reaction has been overwhelming! RMS has opened registration for the inaugural running of the LOVE ROX half- marathon and 10k to be held on February 16, 2013. Runners have often lamented that battling the let down after the Richmond marathon and half-marathon while they wait for the spring races to roll around is downright depressing.

LOVE ROX half and 10k will fill that void with a fun Valentine’s concept and interesting route along and near the James River in downtown Richmond.  With a start/finish line at Tredegar St. across from Brown’s Island, the race will feature a heated tent with hearty food and drink to beat the winter blues.  As an added bonus, the LOVE ROX half marathon and 10k will have mid-morning start times, so you don’t have to face the bitter early morning temperatures!

In addition to age group winners, there will be other award winning categories to go along with the Valentines theme.  The post race party will have a DJ ready to play a dedication song to your best guy, gal or running partner.  If you feel so inclined, there will also be a scenic “proposal hot spot” to ask that all important question… complete with a photographer nearby to catch the magic moment.

Early bird registration pricing runs thru December 26, 2012 and both races will be capped at 2,000 entries.
