Come out and join us for one of the best fall half marathons in the area- Run With WIFLE Half Marathon and Relay. New this year is the 2 person relay. Relay runners will split the half marathon course with the first runner taking on 5.5 miles of Burke Lake trail then handing off to runner two for the challenging 7.6 miles around Lake Mercer. Races will take place on Sunday, September 24, 2017, on a USATF certified course around picturesque Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, VA., located outside of Washington, DC. All proceeds benefit the WIFLE Scholarship Fund. Course is on a mix of wooded trails with crushed stone and paved paths circling beautiful Burke Lake and Lake Mercer. Whether it is the views of the crystal blue lake or the serenity of tree lined trails, this race is truly inspiring. There will be five aid stations serving both water and sports drink at every 2-3 miles. Awards will be provided to the top three male and female half marathon finishers and top male, female and mixed relay teams. Gift certificates for top three age group winners. Race will have both male and female cut technical t-shirts, finisher medals and a post race celebration. Great prep for those fall marathons or chance for a new half PR. Avoid the crowds and noisy bands. Experience the pure joy of running in the Fall in Northern Virginia.
No matter what your reason for running, know that profits from this race go directly to the Women In Federal Law Enforcement (WIFLE) Foundation Scholarship fund. This fund provides scholarships for 4-5 college students pursuing studies for a career in law enforcement and related fields. The future of agencies like DEA, Homeland Security, Border Patrol and National Park Police, to name a few, need qualified, dedicated men and women to protect this great nation. So invite your friends and family to join you in running for this great cause.
