Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers),  that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer****.

The tenth edition  of the August Gusto 5K / 1 Mile Run/Walk will engage the trails at beguilingly attractive River Legacy Parks. Come join us, have an august marvelous time, get a lovely leg workout and at the same time lend a helping hand to Arlington Charities, a compassionate facility helping some of the needy families in our midst.. See you there. This race is the last or anchor leg of  the Summer Scintillation Troika (SST) series.  


By the way, as in past years, there will be a special recognition award for everyone that registers for all three SST races.


Net proceeds from the race will benefit Arlington Charities --  catering to some of the needy families in our midst.”
