November 3, 2024
For the past 15 years, the Regency Mile (and 5&Under 400m Express Run) is the largest timed youth road race in Richmond with both in-person and virtual race options. In addition to providing a fun family day of racing, the proceeds of this event go directly to producing free fitness programs in Richmond’s lowest-opportunity neighborhoods and $2,000+ will be donated to local school’s physical education departments. We will again have a fun, fall festival following this year’s race.
The Regency Mile carries on the long-standing tradition of its predecessor, the Short Pump Mile. The course is entirely closed to traffic and encircles Regency Square Mall. This year, we have a kid’s mile, parent’s mile, and a 400m race for ages 5 & under.
Date & Location
The 2023 Regency Mile is November 3, 2024 at Regency Square Mall (1420 N Parham Rd, Henrico, VA 23229).

Awards will be held immediately after each heat for each age group, but you MUST run in your correct age group heat. Overall winners, school competition winners, and costume contest winners (must be in costume at awards) will be announced soon after at the end of last heat!
The top five overall male and female runners will receive gift certificates (1st $100, 2nd $70, 3rd $50, 4th $30, 5th $20). Adult runners are not eligible for overall awards. Age group awards will be given to the top 5 or 10 finishers in each age group based on the total size of the age group (see heats). Race day age is determined by your age on race day. There are no awards for the 5 & under 400m Express Run as it is untimed with a focus on participation though 5 & under participants can compete for an award in the mile race instead. If you are late for your race, you may compete in another heat of the same gender, but you will not be allowed to receive an award for your age group. Everyone gets a medal when they cross the finish line!
Fun Fall Festival
After the race, make sure to stick around and enjoy our Fall Festival complete with costume contests, candy, games, and more. All participants are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes after your race to win prizes.

The Regency Mile, formerly the Short Pump Mile, is the largest timed youth road race in Richmond, attracting over 1,300 runners in previous years. In its 12th year, this event promotes fitness, school pride, family fun, and community involvement.
Our partnering sponsors help make the Regency Mile a special event and also an affordable one for many families. By sponsoring the event, your business or organization helps area children learn how fun running can be and supports community outreach, all while underwriting costs of the event. Additionally, 100% of proceeds benefit local kids through the Live Red Foundation’s free community fitness programs and $2,000 will be donated back to local schools’ physical education departments.
To make this possible, we need your help. We have various levels of sponsorship available and would love to discuss the options with you. Please contact Michael Harlow at [email protected] for more information.
