The Powhatan Village Run was established in 1981 by Phil Blankenship and Hal Hedley as a community road race for all ages and skill levels. Over the years the race has benefited many causes and donated thousands of dollars to charity. However, the primary purpose of the race has not been to make money, but to provide a quality road race in a rural and hospitable setting. We are proud to be one of Central Virginia’s oldest and best road races!
Course: Start and finish will be at the Elizabeth R. Lewis (Powhatan) YMCA in Fighting Creek Park (2269 Mann Road Powhatan, VA 23139). Miles 1-3 traverse the streets of the Village of Powhatan. Mile 4 runs on the beautiful new Fighting Creek Park Trail before returning to Mann Rd just west of the starting line.
