The Monument Avenue 10K is this Saturday

The Monument Avenue 10K is this Saturday

Last Friday in the Times-Dispatch I ran down a list of upcoming area events to get you outdoors over the next couple of months. You’ve already missed No. 1) Go to the tree climbing championship in Byrd Park. But the good times are just getting rolling. This Saturday, of course, is the Monument Ave 10K. Run that in the morning, with 40,000 of your closest friends, then head down to the Jordan Point Marina in Hopewell where the James River Association will be ferrying visitors up the James to their brand new ecology school on Presquile. Sen. Tim Kaine will be on hand touring the facilities, and there will be all sorts of eco-related activities for kids and adults. And that’s just this weekend. Click here for all the other good stuff coming up.

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?
