Xterra East Championship
The 2015 XTERRA East Championship marks the 17th year XTERRA has been held in the River City.
There aren’t too many trail runs that can be described as “an urban adventure,” but that is just what the XTERRA Richmond Trail Run offers. The course takes runners through many challenges in and around the city of Richmond, including crossings of the James River and several climbs up and down stairs, bridges and forest hills. Richmond is widely regarded as the sport’s finest urban adventure. Events include the XTERRA Richmond 10k trail run, the XTERRA Richmond half-marathon trail run, free kids races, free clinics taught by proathletes, the Paul Mitchell Cut-a-thon to raise money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and two off-road triathlons – a half-distance XTERRA Sprint race (perfect for newcomers) and the XTERRA East Championship.
