Women’s 4-miler

Charlottesville 10-miler

There are many benefits to running the women’s 4-miler (supporting UVA’s Breast Care Program, improving your health and stamina), but perhaps the most interesting component of the Labor Day weekend run is its training program, which begins two months before the 4-miler and ensures your readiness for the big day. Plus, you meet a slew of interesting women all working toward the same goal. The Charlottesville 10-miler, which began 38 years ago, takes second place.
