Maury Place at Monument is the perfect lodging accommodation for runners and spectators of the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10k,
Richmond's premier running event named one of "America's great road races" by USA Today. The 2013 10k will run Saturday, April 13, 2013.
Richmond's 10k is the 10th largest running event of any distance in the US, and the 26th largest in the world.
Monument Avenue is a beautiful race course, with its wide grass median and famous statues, lined with trees and historic homes, and featuring one mile of cobblestone paving.
The 10k welcomes all levels of participants; runners, joggers, and walkers will find the event to be well organized and friendly. The one word to describe the race is "fun"-- each year sponsors hold a "Dress Up & Run"
contest with both group and individual prizes for the best costume.
