This 5k Race / Fun Run winds through the Greenbriar Community in Fairfax, VA.  With a Start and Finish behind the Total Wine & More in the Greenbriar Shopping Center followed by a post-race party at Dogfish Head Ale House (just across the parking lot from the Start/Finish Line).  Each participant will receive a super-soft race t-shirt, a FREE BEER after the race (for participants over 21), and access to post race party including a live performance by Metro Jazz Trio!

This race is USATF certified and chip timed making it the perfect event for serious runners, or those looking for a great excuse to drink before noon!  Prizes will be awarded to the Top 3 male and 3 females in each age group.  As an added bonus, since this race is the HATS and Hops 5k, we encourage runners to wear their craziest hat.  A prize will be awarded for the best hat.

100% of the profits from this race will go to support Montessori School of Fairfax and Bambi Uganda Orphans.  This race will provide safe play for both children here in our local community and in Uganda.

The Montessori School of Fairfax is looking to construct an indoor playground/gynasium area for the children to have a safe place to play in unsafe weather conditions.  For more information on the Montessori School of Fairfax please visit http://www.montessori-fairfax.com/.

Bambi Uganda Orphans is a non-profit organization working to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.  In order to make this organization self-sustaining a playground is being constructed in Uganda; the proceeds from which will go to fund Bambi's life-saving and life-changing programs.  For more information on Bambi Uganda Orphans please visit www.bambiugandaorphans.org.
