Richmond Marathon Pre-Race Checklist!

The Richmond Marathon is upon us! Do you have everything you need for success on (and after) raceday?


The Richmond Marathon is less than a week away. While we probably wont see freezing temperatures like we had this past weekend, you can still bet that it’ll be at least a little chilly on race day morning.  So how do you dress for a chilly morning, but still be prepared for the late morning warm up? Layers! We reccomend a lightweight breathable base layer made of a wicking material, normally short sleeved, underneath a  warmer outer layer such as a half-zip or jacket this way you’re able to adapt to the changing weather around you as well as your own internal body temperature. A good rule of thumb is to dress as if it were 15° warmer outside. We’ve attached the weather report below, along with a race day check list to help you prepare for saturday morning.
