On Saturday, September 28th VCU will host the Broad Street Mile:
The VCU Broad Street Mile combines a series of 1-mile fun runs with a community festival on the city’s major thoroughfare, Broad Street. The inaugural event will celebrate the VCU 175th Anniversary and 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.
Broad Street will be transformed into two areas, a mile side, and festival side. The mile side will feature fun themed mile races throughout the event, while the festival side will feature exhibits from VCU academic programs, VCU student organizations, corporate sponsors, and community organizations. The festival will also include music, art, food, and fitness demonstrations.
Come out to run a mile in support of your favorite charity, and then walk a mile through the festival.
