Sign up today for the 2015 Children's Hospital Foundation Four Mile Walk/Run!

Sign up now for this amazing race through scenic, historic neighborhoods of Richmond's North Side. The Children's Hospital Foundation Four Mile Walk/Run is on a flat course, so it's fun for every age and level of runner.

Make sure your child signs up for the Superkid Adventure Obstacle Course. This is a fun, challenging test of strength and superhero power for kids ages 5-10.

We'll have local mascots participating and cheering your kids on as they run through the course. See below for a map of the adventure course!

Costume Contest:

By participating in this event, you are a superhero for the children cared for at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU—so you should dress the part! All participants are encouraged to complete the walk/run course in their favorite superhero costume. Fly solo as Superman, join a team as one of the Avengers, or invent your own hero and matching costume! Judges along the race course will award a best costume prize following the race.

The Superkid Adventure Obstacle Course is $10 on or before September 25 or $15 after. Registration for the Superkids Adventure Obstacle Course includes a superhero cape, participation ribbon and goody bag.
