Music lineup set for Monument 10k

By Matt Lincoln

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Monument Avenue 10k is about much more than running.  With registration numbers on record pace and just a few weeks to go the race organizers have announced the entertainment lineup for the April 2 event.

Richmond favorite Plunky and Oneness is set to headline the festivities in Monroe Park, but there are also over 30 bands scheduled to perform along the 6.2-mile out-and-back course.  That means runners and walkers can expect to see a new act at every block, and with genres ranging from Rock n' Roll to folk, funk and even Japanese drums, there is plenty of variety to entertain all tastes.
