Ashburn, VA

About This Activity

As running becomes a faster-growing sport across the country, many of the high schools in Loudoun County, VA do not have sufficient funding for their track & field and cross country programs to allow student athletes to more fully explore the sport. The Loudoun Half Marathon & 8k raises money to supplement the schools' budgets so that ADs may enhance these and other athletic programs.

The race is organized by the Ashburn Area Running Club (AARC) a local group of running enthusiasts. Please consider participating or join us as a volunteer for this early-Spring community event!
