Out of respect and concern for runners, volunteers, sponsors, and everyone else involved with this race, the Fodderstack 10k has been cancelled for 2020.
We had initially postponed the race with the intention of running it this Fall, but with so many uncertainties along with the time, energy, and finances required, we’ve elected to focus all efforts on next year’s running in April 2021.
We will be reaching out to runners and sponsors in the coming weeks with additional information pertaining to this change.
This race is the primary fundraiser for the Rappahannock County Park and we thank you for all your support.
Hosted in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the tradition of the 42nd Annual Fodderstack 10K race begins again in the Spring of 2020.

Whether you’re looking for a serious race against other accomplished and proven runners, or simply challenging yourself for a morning, The Fodderstack 10K is sure to leave a lasting impression.
