Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019

This is a race for EVERYONE!
No judgments and no stigma, just FUN!

Cameron designed this race to be a fun, family-friendly event for all to enjoy. As we approach the sixth year of Cameron’s signature event in Richmond, we plan to add even more excitement and fun to both the course and the post-race party. Whether you walk, jog, or run, we want you to join us as we end
the stigma of mental illness. 


We are proud to have the support of


The Course

The run starts and finishes on the Vita Trail in Byrd Park just across from the Carillon. While the course is almost entirely flat, it is anything but boring! There are fun surprises along the way that will be sure to put a smile on your face. After all, it was designed by a vibrant 16-year-old!

Strollers and wheelchairs welcome!


Looking for an extra challenge? Run the course twice for the same price!

5k = 3.1 miles     Double5k = 6.2 miles


Stick around after the race and make a day of it. This is not something you want to miss! Live music, food, Family Fun Zone, Mindfulness Area, exciting vendor booths, photo areas, a video booth, and more!

This is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends, to learn more about the amazing things the CKG Foundation is doing in the local community, and to help us show our support for all of the other wonderful organizations in Richmond that help make it possible for us to continue to SpeakUp, loud and clear!


Whether you are joining your coworkers to stay healthy and end the stigma, or you are a social butterfly that wants to wear a silly costume along with your amazing group of friends, or you want to let someone know you care by starting a team in their honor, you are welcome to join us and SpeakUp as a group.
