SportsFrom college sports to NASCAR, from hiking and biking to tubing on the James River ... there's something for everyone in Greater Richmond!
Local colleges, including Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond, boast strong basketball programs, recently competing in the NCAA basketball tournament.
The region was chosen as the location for the 2014 USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals and 2015 UCI Championships.
However, most Richmonders opt for participatory sports, such as running, cycling and kayaking. The Sportsbackers association hosts numerous events throughout the year for those who would rather participate than observe.
