About This Activity

Making history in our second year of the annual Fluvanna Fest 5k! Race your heart out or just enjoy a walk with friends and family through Fluvanna’s quaint neighborhoods. The 5k festivities will begin at 9am on Saturday, June 17th with the start and finish of the race at the Fluvanna Community Church (3363 Fluvanna Ave. Ext. Jamestown). CASH PRIZES awarded to the top finishers and other prizes for age-group winners + more fun category winners as well! Along the course you’ll cruise by the lake, by Fluvanna landmarks like the historic War Vets and Old Church, be cheered on by spirited Fluvanna neighbors and finish under a tribute to our local firefighters (both professional and volunteer) and the biggest American flag you’ve ever seen before you slide (or slip) through a massive pile of foam - you don't have to slide through the foam...but you should! The race will be professionally timed, utilizing chip technology! *See race age categories below*

Come a little early (or stay a bit after the race) and enjoy "The Rev's 'Famous' Belgian Waffle Breakfast" just steps from the start/finish line - Reverend Dayle Keefer has spent many a morning testing and tasting his own recipe and believes it is perfection! We aren't so sure it's "famous," but he's convinced it is - either way they are delicious and you won't want to miss it :) Breakfast starts at 7am and will be available until 10am. (Asking that a donation be made at the door for the breakfast - proceeds will go to projects to complete the Fluvanna Community Family Center in which the breakfast will be held).

Bring the family and your friends to cheer you on at the 5k and the little ones can jump, crawl and race the Mini Ninja Course while they wait! The first 25 kids through the course will get a medal! Don't miss out on this one - too many great photo opportunities are sure to happen :) (You may want to bring a change of clothes for any children doing the course - they will also have the opportunity to play in the foam - adult supervision required).

Proceeds from the 5k go to The Fluvanna Community Historical Society and the community revitalization projects they have planned. Registration is $20 and each runner and walker will receive an awesome Tshirt if registered before June 9th. Check out our Facebook page for updates of the weekend's details - hope to see you there!

We are asking that participants pick up their race packets the night before the race - Friday, June 16th anytime from 5-8pm at the Fluvanna Community Church.  If you are unable to pick up your race packet on Friday evening, you can pick it up the morning of the race between 6-8:30am.
