1. REGISTER FOR THE RACE
Sign up on the Virginia 10 Miler Website for the event of your choice: 10 miler, 4 mile run or 4 mile walk.
*Note: 2020 registration is not yet available for this race*
2. START A FUNDRAISING PAGE
Create your FlipCause fundraising page. Remember, this is the ONLY WAY to officially join the Running Water team. We challenge you to set a goal of at least $100 for every mile, or funding an entire well for $2600. Set up the page under your name or a team name (if you plan to pool fundraising with others).
ABOUT THE RACE
The Virginia 10 Miler is one of the most iconic races in central Virginia, drawing participation from numerous professional athletes and Olympians over the years. Since 1974, the Virginia 10 Miler has grown to include over 3,300 finishers in 2019. Past pics and updates can be found on the 10 Miler's social media pages.
2020 race week festivities are to be announced, but last year they included a downtown festival and children's fun run on Friday, live music on the course (a tradition), and a post-race celebration the day after the race.
ABOUT THE CAUSE
Global Partners has installed 300 fresh water wells from 2013 to January of 2020. We thank God for the opportunity to share the gift of life with so many villages in India, and most recently Uganda. We partner with local pastors to find villages most in need. After each well is installed, a dedication celebration is held. These celebrations are filled with joy, singing, dancing, and laughter!
