Race History

This is the Taste of Town Center 5k’s 21st year in Virginia Beach, which has grown as Kiwanis Club of Town Center’s signature race.

Originally held at Mt. Trashmore with a hundred or so runners, the event moved to other venues such as the Sportsplex and Virginia Wesleyan College. Finally, when the Kiwanis Club found its new home at the Hilton Garden Inn for its meetings, the opportunity came for the Taste of Town Center 5K to move to the new and growing Town Center business district.

Many of the charities—American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Seton Youth, and CHKD–you support by participating in the race this year have received the benefits of this event since its beginning. Macaroni Grill

We could not produce this event without the support of the many well-known restaurants in Town Center and the surrounding area who bring their signature menu items to the Taste as well as the businesses and other organizations who are our sponsors. This year our Taste of Town Center and awards ceremony will be held at the fountain plaza.

We listen to your suggestions. We became the Kiwanis Club that could, using our contacts, secure restaurant and entertainment venue tickets to give away to our runners. Additionally, our race route is always influenced by your needs. A few years ago a new bridge opened in Town Center, and that gave us a change but this year is going to be the best ever!
