We are still a while off from the first ever Historic Haunt brought to you by Run Richmond, but if you are planning to make this your first 5K or up your distance and go for your first 10K it may be time to start training.
I know from experience that it is a lot easier to get outside and do a training run if you are motivated by the fact that you have a race in mind. Scheduling races are what got me running consistently in the first place. The Historic Haunt is going to be a fun race. We will have lots of volunteers, cool shirts, a couple great causes to benefit from the proceeds and a passion to get more people involved in the Richmond running community.
I know that people generally wait to closer to races to sign up, but we are very limited in the number of people we can accommodate. The parking situation at Whitehall is the determining factor in how many people we can open the race up to. I am confident that we will be right at the edge of having to close registrations before race day. So sign up now and guarantee your spot. It will give you the motivation to get training and help secure your spot in this inaugural Run Richmond race.
