The 5K is a timed event that runs around the Tysons mall (Tysons I) - starting outside of Bloomingdale's. Runners & walkers are welcome! Strollers are permitted.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 5K finishers (Male/Female) in each of 4 age categories as well as the fastest corporate team (fastest average time of top 3 runners). PRIZE FOR THE FASTEST TEAM = Happy hour at Eddie V's in Tysons for 25-30 guests!!! Includes wine, beer and light apps! The winner will be decided on the top 3 finishers from a team (average time).
Packet Pick Up: Please join us from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Earl's (Tysons Corner Center, 7902 Tysons One Place, Tysons, VA 22012) on September 8, 2016 for Packet Pick Up! If you are unable to attend, you will be able to pick up your packet on race morning.
Participants will receive a t-shirt and awesome swag bag, however, if you register after 8/29 we can't guarantee a shirt. We will use the mall parking garages (the mall is not open this early) so there is plenty of parking for everyone! Details on where to park will be emailed closer to the race. The mall is also metro accessible via the Silver line.
Even though Northern Virginia is considered one of the wealthiest jurisdictions in the country, we still face a poverty rate of about 5%. This means, based on U.S. Census figures, that more than 90,000 people are living in poverty and 30 percent are children. Please come run or walk to help feed our neighbors.
