2022 Fodderstack 10K Classic

Saturday, April 23, 2022, 9AM.
Flint Hill to Washington, VA.


We are pleased to announce that registration for the Fodderstack 10K is now open.

In addition to our in-person race, we are also very excited to offer the “Virtual Fodderstack 10K” again this year. This is a great option for anyone not comfortable with live racing or for those not in the area but still wanting to participate and support the Rappahannock County Park.

Pricing for the in-person and virtual races will be the same and both utilize the same platform, RunSignup.

Please note that for our live race, precautions will be taken to ensure proper CDC, State, and Local COVID protocols are properly followed and adhered to.  Because rules and regulations may change between now and race day, final details will be communicated when we get closer to the event and have real-time restrictions to guide our COVID Mitigation plan.

For both the in-person race and the virtual option, the awards categories will need to be determined based on registration and participation numbers. The two options will be scored separately.

What is a Virtual Race?
A Virtual Race is a race you can do at any location, at your pace, either outside or on a treadmill.

Do I need to run the actual Fodderstack 10k course?
No, the course does not need to be run. In fact, due to the roads not being closed and lack of police assistance, we request you DO NOT run the actual course

When do I have to run the virtual race?
You will need to run your virtual 10K between April 16th to the 24th, 2022

How do I enter my virtual time?
Runners can either utilize RaceJoy GPS tracking or you can log in your 10k times manually

Can I register for the virtual race and then later switch to in-person? Or vice versa?
Yes, that is possible however we’ll need a final decision by April 16th, 2022

If I do virtual, how will I receive my t-shirt and possible award
We’ll have the t-shirts available for pickup at the Rappahannock Welcome Center for locals and we’ll mail the rest to those who are out of the area. If you are local and need the shirt mailed, we can do that too.

What happens if things get worse and the April running also has to be cancelled?
If the April running is cancelled due to Covid-19, we’ll be in touch with all runners to let them know if the race will be rescheduled or switched to virtual.
