Alumni Races

Just because you leave London doesn’t mean you don’t want to keep in touch and keep running (or at least keep in touch…)

Our alumni like to get together for races in the US from time to time.  This is a much more casual outing – it’s more about seeing old friends and making some new ones than it is about serious running.  We try to find races with multiple distances, and you can bring a friend or come and not run – that’s fine!

Don’t forget to join our special WRW Alumni Facebook page – search for “Women Running the World – Alumni” and ask to join.

Upcoming WRW Alumni races

November 10, 2018 – Richmond Marathon, Half & 8K –

No matter which distance you choose, when you run Richmond, you’ll receive VIP treatment! With thousands of volunteers and spectators encouraging you, and more race perks that you can count, you’ll see why we’ve earned our rep as “America’s Friendliest Marathon” (thanks, Runner’s World)!

Each of our scenic courses showcases some of our city’s favorite attributes. With street art and river views, historic architecture and beautiful parks, our race routes treat runners to a unique and unforgettable tour of RVA that ends with a grand finale finish line and post-race party on the riverfront!

During your race, you’ll also encounter live bands, DJs, spirit groups, and Party Zones that will offer plenty of encouragement and motivation. Need an extra burst of energy? We have you covered with junk food stops and wet wash cloths! Once you cross the finish line, you’ll be greeted by a well-earned celebration on Brown’s Island complete with pizza and a Sierra Nevada Beer on the house!
