I'm a Richmond, VA native, runner, coach, former area teacher and your Richmond expert! I love our great city and enjoy every opportunity to share the great running experience we have here. Along the way, you'll learn about our local history with the beautiful James River as your backdrop. You can also book an exclusive running experience for yourself or your group. We cater runs to various areas of RVA upon request.
We'll run the Canal Walk traveling past Haxall Point to Brown's Island. From there we will cross the Tyler Potterfield Bridge, which spans the James River and provides great photo ops, and a view of other sights you may want a closer look at on your own, such as the Virginia War Memorial. From there, we will follow the Flood Wall, which ends on the Manchester side of the River. We cross the Mayo Bridge to Shockoe Bottom and the Capital Trail.
