About the 5K Race
NEW THIS YEAR! The USATF-certified 5K Course will start at Shelter C at Burke Lake Park, 7315 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, VA. The course this year is an “out and back” route, mostly on paved road over mildly rolling terrain, with less than a mile on dirt path. The race ends back at Shelter C for post-race festivities including food, music, door prizes, and children’s activities.
This race is chip timed by NoVA Race Timing. Race results will be posted on their website, and we will provide a link to those final race times here on our website.
