James River 1/2 Marathon

The inaugural James River Half Marathon, the second race in the PHATT series takes place in the wonderful James River State park. Offering trails that meander through 1500 acres of rolling meadows and quiet forests and along the James River. Perfect for beginners and running enthusiasts.

If the race needs to be canceled for any reason related to COVID-19 (i.e., state or federal closures; permitting, insurance or sanctioning revocation), the race will be run virtually (on the actual course, not anywhere). In this event, specific details will be emailed to all entrants about date/time/permissions and other germane specifics for running the course. As a result, please plan accordingly. No refunds, transfers, or deferrals will be given in the case of the race moving to a virtual format.


Online registration opens January 1, 2021.
