Presented by The Petersburg Chamber of Commerce
These races offer a very unique experience as you are running through history and running through movie and television sets at the same time. The course starts and ends at Union Station in historic Old Towne Petersburg , which is a thriving neighborhood filled with a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, 2 craft breweries, art galleries and lots of shopping. Old Towne will look very familiar if you saw Spielberg’s Lincoln, the AMC series TURN: Washington’s Spies, the PBS series Mercy Street, all of which were filmed here. Additionally, as you run through the Petersburg National Battlefield, muskets will be firing as the reenactors provide a Civil War battle experience. It is a great course to run and after the race there will be plenty to see and do. There will also be a Kids’ Fun Run, so make it a family weekend!
