Get a 5k Tour of RVA’s 1st Better Block

Better Block 5k logoRichmond’s first Better Block project is just a month away. Better Blocks temporarily overhaul an entire city corridor, sprucing up storefronts, installing innovative streetscapes, and making┬ácommunity ideas for the future REAL for a full weekend.

Our first Better Block is coming to RVA June 13th and 14th along 25th Street in North Church Hill. Today we’re excited to announce the Better Block 5k as a prime opportunity to tour the Better Block site and its surrounding historic neighborhood.┬áParticipants who sign up to walk or jog this 3.1 mile course get a T-shirt and post-race food, specially provided by our Better Block vendors along 25th Street.

Registration is easy and discounts are available for many of our neighbors.

The 5k will start at 9am on the 14th with packet pickup immediately beforehand from 7:30-9.

Check out the course. It winds through Jefferson Park, down Marshall Street, and circles back to the heart of the Better Block corridor.
