The Arc of Northern Virginia Corporate & Community Team Challenge is the premier corporate challenge foot race and the area’s only team-based race with teams of 5-7 runners. More details below!


About the 5K Race

5k running course mapFor four decades, this has been Northern Virginia’s premier corporate and community challenge foot race and the area’s only team based race with teams of 5-7 runners.


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.


Running Teams consist of 5 to 7 team members for Team Challenge 5K Course. The competition is scored by finish order of runners, not by individual times.


Team Categories include:

• Corporate Coed – (Note: requires at least 2 female team members.)
• Corporate All Male
• Corporate All Female
• Community Open



Trophies will be awarded to the top five Corporate All Male, top five Corporate Coed, top four Corporate All Female, and top four Community Open teams.


Overall Finish Categories:

The top five men and women will receive Amazon gift cards.
