Message from the event host:
It's that time of year again! Dust off your cowbells, clappers, thundersticks or other favorite noisemakers and join us for the 13th Annual Fauquier Avenue Marathon Party - the biggest, rowdiest, most motivatingest party on the course. Come cheer on your friends as they run the Richmond 1/2 or full Marathon or just come by to have a good time. Either way you will be helping to support a great cause!
We were even written up in Richmond Magazine as one of the best neighborhood parties in RVA!
Once again we will be competing in the Sportsbackers Cheer Challenge and our winnings will go to Speak Up 5K - Cameron K Gallagher Memorial Foundation. The Fauquier Avenue Marathon Cheering Party has donated over $2,500 to worthy charities over the last 10 years. This year we are excited to once again benefit the Speak Up 5K - Cameron K Gallagher Memorial Foundation . Let's win the Cheer Challenge again to maximize our donation!
We will start early enough to cheer on the first runners of the 1/2 marathon (8:10ish) and stay to provide motivation to the very last runner of the full(2:30ish)! Come early or..
.... come late! Stay the whole time or just stop by!
We will provide some food, a keg, and other assorted cocktails. Bring party food or drinks to share if you feel so inclined. Of course, if you will be chasing a runner around the course just bring yourself. Also, you may want to bring a chair. Best of all, the DJ will be in full effect providing musical inspiration to the runners!
Bring yourself, your kids, your friends, your neighbors - just get there! Please pass this invite on to any of your friends who might want to come!
