Good afternoon to all of our valued supporters!

Thank you again for all you have done to help us with the Powhatan Village Run over the years.

After much thought (and some gnashing of teeth), we have decided to postpone this fall’s Powhatan Village Run.

Our race has always been about having fun and promoting fitness, both in short supply as we deal with the impact of COVID-19. However, we are not comfortable with the potential risk to our runners and volunteers in spreading the virus by going forward at this time.

Our plan at this point is to explore the possibilities of rescheduling late this fall or early next spring. We will let you know once a decision is made and we look forward to your continuing support.

Stay safe!

I was able to present Bradford Nunnally with the plaque of appreciation for the Sheriff's department keeping the Village Run participants safe for the past 20 years. This plaque was given in memory of Deputy #27, Robbie Green. Races like this one would not be possible without volunteers and community support! Thank you Powhatan Sheriff's department 🇺🇲
Thanks to all the volunteers who made this an outstanding race once again!👍
Is there walk-up registration tomorrow?
