Maymont provides a spectacular setting for one of the premier running festivals in the country. Participants will run in the shadow of the opulent Maymont Mansion, over tree-lined hills and fields and past wildlife areas filled with bison, deer and other native animals. The beautiful estate allows spectators great visibility and easy access to multiple points along the course. Along with the 5k and 8 Miler divisions for participants of all ages, the festival also features shorter distance events for elementary and middle school kids, as well as events for high school teams. The Festival is organized by the Sports Backers, known for their high quality races. A portion of the proceeds benefits Maymont.
