New Race Venue and Organizer in 2019

After ten successful years, the Short Pump Mile Race is being transitioned by NOVA of Virginia Aquatics to a new venue and a new organizer.

The 2019 Regency Mile will be hosted by Endorphin Fitness at the Regency Square Mall on Sunday, October 27.

This event is the area's largest youth timed road race and fun run for kids -- over 1,300 runners participated in 2018! Proceeds benefit fitness initiatives at local schools and in the community. Prizes for school participation will continue.

Please register for this year's race. See you on October 27!

Yes! Parental participation is limited. A parent or guardian may only run in the heat with their special needs child, the 8 year heats, or the 7 & Under heats. All parents/guardians must start at the back of the corral, and are only there to support their runner in times of need (emergency or moral support). Parents are not allowed to run directly next to their child. This is to be a safe, fair, and competitive event.
