Richmond, VA

Neighborhood Run: Cary Street & Grove Ave

Taber Andrew Bain

For those who like running the streets, Richmond has lots of great neighborhood options. Running groups like to meet up in the Carytown neighborhood in the Museum District and set out on the long brick sidewalks heading west on Cary Street. From here, some of the best streets to connect with are Grove Ave and Malvern Ave — both feature lots of nice homes along long, straight sidewalks. Starting from Carytown, a loop of Cary Street, Grove Ave, and Malvern is about 5.8 miles. Depending on how long you want to run, explore some of the side streets in Windsor Farms or Near West End for a look at some high end homes. Or, continue all the way west to the University of Richmond, where you can put in extra miles on the open space of campus.
