There are no awards for the 4-Mile Walk. However, participants will be given a time and place. This is a non-competitive event. Rules of “race-walking” will not be enforced.
Commemorative Finisher Medals to all that finish the Virginia 4-Mile events.
Event t-shirts are guaranteed to those that register by Sept. 1. Registrations received after the deadline will receive shirts on a first-come first-served basis at packet pickup.
Live bands and music will be located throughout the courses for both races. Runners will be treated to more than 5 live bands and DJ’s. Neighborhood parties are also being organized on the course.
Due to the size and density of this event, baby joggers and strollers are prohibited. The inclusion of strollers in races increases the potential for injury to race participants and children.
The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, The Moore & Giles Virginia 10 Miler encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the Moore & Giles Virginia 10 Miler and its associated events.
We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line.
Runner safety has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of other participants and respect personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
After crossing the finish line, all race participants will gather at E.C. Glass H.S. for plenty of complimentary food and beverage, music, and massages. Bring your family to enjoy the variety of post race activities and awards ceremony.
