The Hardywood Twilight 4-Miler doesn’t go off until April 25 at 6:30 p.m., but already 1,000 thirsty runners have signed up. That’s according to Emily Ward, RichmondOutside.com contributor, who’s helping organize the event. Ward added that the self-proclaimed “block party with a four-mile cover charge” will be capped at 2,000 participants. A month and a half out, it looks like they’ll get there.
Ward said the course goes has yet to be finalized but it will start and end at Hardywood (where band Long Arms will be playing) and go through some part of the Fan. In addition, a portion of beer sales will benefit the James River Association, and registrants can contribute to the Sports Backers’ Active RVA initiative when signing up.
