At Sports Backers, our mission is to inspire people to live actively. Engaging underserved populations is one of our core values and one way we act on this value is by offering Income Based Rates for our events. These special rates are offered to those who qualify and would otherwise not be able to participate.

Those who make $25,000 or less annually or receive proven TANF, Food Stamp or Energy Assistance Benefits from Social Services and are not currently claimed as a dependent by anyone making above $25,000 annually are eligible for the special rates. Please provide one of the following documents for verification:

  • Verification/Eligibility letter from Social Services
  • Most Recent Tax Return

For those that qualify for the income-based entry fee, please email us your verification document by 11:59 PM on Thursday, May 18, 2023. Once we have verified your documentation we will send your online registration instructions. Or you can come by our office or mail the completedĀ Trail Running Events IBR Registration Form (if you want to register for a different event please with a paper form pleaseĀ email us) and your verification document to Sports Backers, 100 Avenue of Champions, Richmond, VA 23230.
