Project Athena Richmond Relay Marathon

Saturday, July 14, 2012


Teams comprised of 4 individuals will each run a 10K lap (for a cumulative "marathon" time) in the very scenic and beautiful downtown Richmond area. Our goal is to have at least 300 teams of "Fundraising Gods/Goddesses"-- that's you!) as well as to honor 50 local Survivors at the start all of whom receive free entry (go to and click on the "Fundraisers & Survivors" page, fill out the application and we'll contact you regarding your registration!)


This page is for those that want to go that "extra mile" by fundraising for Project Athena. No amount it too little or too much! Create your team with your Relay Team name and make that extra difference!

Don't have a team yet? Don't worry! You can still sign up and then head to our Facebook page and post a  "Team up!" note! Just create your team (that means you'll be Team Captain!) and start recruiting! Give your new team mates the name of your team so when they go to register, they can hit the button that says "join an existing team"!!

All female Survivors that participate in the Richmond event also have the opportunity to apply for a larger “Athenaship” or scholarship that could fund and support their dream adventure as a part of their recovery.

All race participants will receive an awesome Merrell Tech tee, unique AthenaGirl finisher's medal, as well as other goodies from some of our sponsors, like Merrell and Wigwam socks! We'll also be have a raffle for prizes from our sponsors and local businesses!


Awards will be given to the Top 5 teams in each of the following categories- ALL Male, ALL Female, Co-Ed, and introducing the Uber God/Goddesses group (ALL team mates must be over the age of 50!) There will also be Special Awards for best God/Goddesses costumes, best team spirit, #1 fundraising team, etc. Winning Teams in each division will receive a free pair of Merrell Shoes for EACH team member!


All entry fees are a 100% tax-deductible gift to the 501(c)3 Project Athena Foundation; 85% of donated funds currently go to programming costs for our Survivors. The Project Athena Foundation provides "Athenaships" or grants to women who've experienced a medical or traumatic setback, in order to further their athletic and adventurous dreams.
