Top 3 reasons to run our race:

3) It is a great course for first-timers (or a PR). The run is an out and back course along a beautiful, almost flat stretch of the Washington and Old Dominion Trail. This is the perfect event for all ages and fitness levels.

2) SWAG (and some cool prizes). Everyone who registers will get a commemorative T-shirt. 

1) You'll change a kid's life. All funds from the run will go to the Youth Leadership Foundation (YLF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Founded in 1997, YLF provides character formation, challenging academics and one-on-one mentoring, and opportunities for parental involvement and support to families in the DC-MD-VA area. 95% of parents involved with YLF see a positive change in their child's behavior and 97% of the children we serve graduate high school and enter higher education.
