The Boxer Brief 5K Run/Walk raises the level of awareness to colorectal cancer while offering education in an effort to stop our country’s second cancer killer in men and women. The 2021 event will be the 9th annual Boxer Brief 5K and we are committed to following the COVID guidelines while preparing a safe and entertaining event. We have a new venue for the June 12, 2021 event and we plan to be live and onsite at City Stadium, Home to the Richmond Kickers.

There will be a virtual challenge option for those living outside of Richmond, Virginia or for those interested in an entire weekend challenge. The goal of the virtual option is to collectively accumulate 3,100 miles as participants across the country participate. The miles accumulated can be achieved through the following activities:  Walk, Run, Ride, Swim or Paddle! Yep! Collect those miles as you participate in multiple activities throughout the weekend of June 12th – June 13th! Perfect for the triathlete, the runner who also likes to hike, our swimmer friends, and for those rowing and paddling on the water. Participants still receive their Boxer Brief T-shirt! No need to record a time, we just need your miles. Join the cross country “movement” to prevent colorectal cancer!

Start times:

Caped Colon Crusader sprint: 7:30am* (Kid’s fun run!)

Wave #1 – Competitive Run: 7:45am**

Wave #2 – Walk, Jog, Run: 8:00am

Virtual Challenge start time:  Anytime. Anywhere. Any distance. The virtual participants are aiming to collect 3,100 miles through a walk, ride, run, swim, or paddle.

*The “Caped Colon Crusader” sprint is back in 2021. The FREE activity offers children under age eight to participate in a 1/4 mile sprint inside City Stadium. The little participants are welcome to wear their favorite cape as they show support for defeating colorectal cancer! Parents will register their child onsite during race day packet pickup.
