2016 Monument Avenue 10k Registration Now Open

monument-runIt’s amazing to think that the Monument Avenue 10k has been around for going on 17 years. If the race is a must for your yearly running calendar, today is a good day: Registration is open for the 2016 event, named one of the country’s top 10 running races by USA Today. And for today only, registrants can save $3 by using the special Cyber Monday promo code ITSHERE on any 10k registration. The offer is valid until 11:59pm for the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k, Virginia 529 Kids Run, and YMCA 10k Training Team.

The 10k will utilize block registration and youth pricing for the first time, with the opening block taking the first 7,500 entries. Starting December 1, the rate will be $30 for adults and $20 for youth under the age of 14. Overall registration will also be capped at 30,000.

All participants who complete the 10k will again receive a custom event medal to recognize their accomplishment of finishing the race.

Registration is also open for the Virginia 529 Kids Run and the YMCA 10k Training Team, a 10-week program designed to prepare runners and walkers alike for the Monument Avenue 10k. The YMCA 10k Training Team kicks off on January 30 at 18 locations in the Richmond area, with a $55 fee during the first block. Registration includes entry into the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k.

Once the first 7,500 spots have been claimed, registration will re-open at a later date with a $35 fee for adults and $25 fee for youth under the age of 14, along with a $60 fee for the YMCA 10k Training Team. The Virginia 529 Kids Run entry fee is $15 through January 31, 2016, and rises to $20 on February 1.
