After four years, the RVA Relays has become one of the most hyped meets of the entire XC Season. This year's installment is not only going to be the biggest and best one yet but it will also feature a glow run race now under the lights!
The 2019 installment of this nighttime meet will feature some of the best squads in the entire state including teams favored to win the VHSL state team title this November. The best part though is definitely the final two "A" relay races being run under the lights in the cool weather at Pole Green Park.
With thousands of string lights, over 14 banks of light stands, and hundreds of glowing fans this is without a doubt the best meet in the entire state for September. It allows for some quick speed work in a fun team building race inside of a competitive environment. Plus, those guys and girls who are more milers than 5K runners will thank you for coming to this meet.
