|Start of the 2017 Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K|
The event isn't just about having fast folks up front...Those college students will be chasing a national title, CRA All-America honors and $10,000 in prize money reserved specifically for college students. This is a race for sure...however, it's also known as "Richmond's largest block party". It's a happening...an event for everyone. Live bands along the course...citizens from amazingly diverse backgrounds come together on this day and become a mass of people with a common goal and destination--the finish line. It's exciting and inspiring. It really is an event you should experience for yourself.
Here's a race preview from the CRA:
