Held on April 9th, this year's race will be the 17th installment of the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k.  Started in 2000, the course is held on the historic Monument Avenue in the heart of Richmond.  Known for its high-energy atmosphere, including live bands and enthusiastic spirit groups, the race has turned into one of the city's most beloved traditions.

"Being headquartered in Richmond, we want to support and be involved with all of the great traditions that the city has to offer."

Founded in 2009, Elephant continues to serve an important role within the Richmond community, not only by providing close to 500 jobs for local residents, but also by participating in and giving back to the local area.   

"Elephant Auto Insurance is rapidly becoming an integral part of the local Richmond community," said Meghan Keogh, Event Director at Sports Backers. "It only makes sense for us to partner with a company that has such dedication and involvement to their own hometown."
