Presented by City of Petersburg

Runners and walkers of all abilities are invited to explore historic Petersburg while enjoying a beautiful morning outdoors! There will be a 13.1-mile Half Marathon at 7:00am, a 3.1-mile 5K beginning at 7:30am, and a Kids Fun Run for ages 3-15 beginning at 10:30 am. Petersburg residents will receive a 15% discount. It all begins and ends at the historic Union Train Station on River Street in Old Towne Petersburg. You may pick up your packets on Thursday from Noon – 6pm at Lucky Road Running Store at Willow Lawn in Richmond, at Union Train Station in Old Towne on Friday from Noon – 6pm, and on Saturday morning at Union Station from 5:45am – 6:15am. Marathon runners will pass through a battle reenactment as you run through Petersburg National Battlefield. You are running through history and you are running through a movie set, as Spielberg’s “Lincoln” was filmed here as was the PBS Series “Mercy Street”, and many other film projects.
All Finishers will receive a Medal!
