A message from Rice Properties Group Founder, Ryan Rice:
"Mental Health awareness is a subject that I am very passionate about because for many years, I have struggled through mental illness personally: depression, anxiety, and the fear of failure. I am grateful that I have overcome these hurdles in my life through transparency, accepting my vulnerability, and crushing the powerful stigma that still exist for those dealing with mental illness. You are not alone in your mental struggles. My goal is to provide hope, acceptance, and respect to those dealing with mental health issues, and inspire those coping with their personal struggles."Click Here to Donate!

The Fun Run will start and end in the grassy area just to the left of the parking lot outside of Visitor Center 1. The course is mapped out to run along the paved road that runs throughout Bull Run. The Start Line and Finish Line are the same. Water and snacks will be provided at the finish line.

Not quite ready to run a full 5K? That is A-OK! We want everyone to feel like they can participate, regardless of their fitness level. There are plenty of spots along the route that you can loop back around to the Start Line. This is a fun run, so this will not be competitively timed.
