From the Sports Backers: The Anthem Richmond Marathon, which will celebrate its 35th running Saturday, November 10, has broken its all-time event registration record of 17,073 set for last year’s event. With nine days until race day, entry numbers for the Anthem Richmond Marathon, American Family Fitness Half Marathon, and HCA Virginia 8k are expected to climb near 18,000. This marks the 13th time in 14 years that the total event entry record has been set.
Entries for the American Family Fitness Half Marathon are approaching their limit and registration for the event is expected to close in the next few days, well in advance of next week’s race. As of Thursday afternoon, November 1, less than 50 entries remain for the race. Once those entries are gone, registration will close immediately.
Live text/e-mail alerts available on race day. The Anthem Richmond Marathon is proud to offer live results of the marathon, half marathon, and 8k on race day through the race website. The site will provide 6.2, 13.1 and 20-mile splits for marathoners, 10k splits for the half marathoners, and finish results for all three races.
