Festival Info 

The VCU Broad Street Mile returns on Saturday, September 20th! The event combines a street festival with a 5K Run and series of one-mile fun runs on the city’s major thoroughfare, Broad Street. The second annual event will take place on Broad Street between Belvidere Street and Hermitage Road. In addition to providing a fun, festive event, the VCU Broad Street Mile provides a turnkey fundraising opportunity for local community organizations. We are excited to introduce the VCU 5K which is a new addition for 2014!

Broad Street will be transformed into two areas, a running course and festival. The running course will feature the VCU 5K to kick-off the event, and five themed one-mile races that start at 20 minute intervals. The festival area will feature live bands, music, art, food trucks, and exhibits from VCU academic programs, corporate sponsors, vendors, and local community organizations.

Come out to run in support of your favorite charity, and then walk a mile through the festival.
