Two of our guests ran the race, and two others were parents of participants. Guests of Maury Place were able to watch the race from our front porch, where afterwards they enjoyed a post race celebration with mimosas.
The Monument Avenue 10k is known for being a fun event, featuring live bands, cheering spectators, and a costume contest for runners. The 10k is extremely popular with runners of all kinds, from elite runners to casual athletes. Crowds of spectators line the streets and fill the broad grass median of Monument Avenue. "it's the best people-watching opportunity Richmond has," according to Mike McCormick of Richmond Sports Backers, which organizes the 10k.
