RICHMOND, Va. -- The Sports Backers announced its plan for the 2021 Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k presented by Kroger.

The race, which typically attracts thousands of runners to downtown Richmond, is getting a COVID-19 makeover this year.

"It won’t be held as a traditional single-day event on Saturday, March 27, and instead will take place June 3-6, 2021," a Sports Backer spokesperson wrote in an email. "The rescheduled event will be held in a socially-distanced manner over four days at two locations: Byrd Park in the City of Richmond and Dorey Park and the Virginia Capital Trail in Henrico County."

“While we are utilizing an event format very similar to the 2020 10k last September with new additions and improvements to enhance the participant experience, we are confident that we can create a celebration of wellness and active living that has made this race one of Richmond’s favorite traditions for more than 20 years,” Meghan Keogh, Event Director for the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k presented by Kroger. said.

YMCA 10k Training Teams will begin practices in March.
