Earth Day 5k

As part of the Chesterfield Outdoor Fest, we will be hosting a family-friendly 5k and kid’s mile run/walk. The event will be held at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds on Courthouse Rd. This will be a great way to celebrate outdoors and fitness on this special day.

Chesterfield Outdoor Fest

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds, the Chesterfield Outdoor Fest will bring together county departments, businesses, nonprofits and residents in a celebration of safeguarding our natural resources. The Chesterfield Outdoor Fest will include entertainment, food trucks and outdoor activities, as well as demonstrations from Parks and Recreation and Cooperative Extension.  Learn more here.

Race Course

The Earth Day 5k & Kid’s Mile courses are flat and fast.  The 5k starts and finishes with a loop of the Fairgrounds followed by an out and back loop along a beautiful paved bike/walk trail before completing another loop of the fairgrounds and crossing the finish line.  The Kid’s Mile is simply one loop of the Fairgrounds which is super spectator-friendly.
