Run Charlottesville

Season 6 coming soon!


Our Origins

Run Charlottesville, the origin of Run Your City, was founded in 2018 by two members for the UVA Cross Country and Track and Field team in the Summer of 2018 with a mission to better children in the Charlottesville community through running. By offering a free running program that is easily accessible to families from around Charlottesville, we’re hoping to provide a fun way for kids to get exercise and learn about healthy life habits, as well as communication and teamwork skills. ​

What if there was a future where all kids have the opportunity to participate in sports regardless of socioeconomic factors? A future where collegiate athletes join with local communities to ensure team sports are accessible to all kids.

"I can’t say enough good things about this group! Run Charlottesville is well organized, supportive and fun! It is incredible to see so many collegiate athletes and students engaging and encouraging local children. Watching collegiate athletes run hand in hand, cheering and motivating area kiddos reminds us all how lucky we are to live in this town. This is Charlottesville!"
