About Patrick Henry Half Marathon

Set for its annual running this summer, the Patrick Henry Half Marathon takes runners on a scenic, out-and-back loop route through both downtown and the rolling countryside just outside Ashland, Va., for a race that sees more than 1,000 runners cross the finish line every year.

The race is part of the Richmond Road Runners Club’s Grand Prix series of races, and is organized by both the club and Sports Backers, a Virginia-based sports organization that puts together a wide range of races across the state each year.
