Race Day Timing
This event will be promptly at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 16, 2019. No runners will be permitted to start later than 7:35 a.m. so please arrive no later than 7:35 a.m. so you can get parked, pick up the race bibs and get to the start line.

Please understand this is a safety issue. We will be closing one lane on South Van Dorn Road until the last runner passes when we will need to reopen the lane.

Important Course & Parking Information
Please read the course and parking information below.

*  The course is mostly flat with one extended gentle uphill on Castlewellan Dr., however, you and your child should be realistic about your average mile pace when lining up in pace corrals at the start.

*  The course is open and vehicular traffic may be present at various times/locations. This is particularly true on the Edison school grounds which is open to the public at all times.

*  The course is run on interior roads within the Edison High School property, a short section on South Van Dorn and Castlewellan Dr.

*  At various locations, the course may include (but not limited to) any of the following: curbs requiring step up and/or step down and sharp turns. Rest assured that we prepare the course as much as possible in terms of eliminating as much risk as possible to offer a safe and enjoyable run.

* Parking is plentiful but please respect the course marshals, signage and barricades as some areas are off limits.

  Exiting may be very slow due to runner traffic – please be prepared for a SLOW exit. Runner safety is first. Course marshals will be managing vehicle and runner traffic.

Coaches will be sending course and parking maps as well as the vehicle flow plan in the week prior to the 5k. In the meantime, should you have any questions about the course or parking, please do not hesitate to contact Helen Russell at metrorunwalk.helen@gmail.com

Course & Location Information
Edison High School 5801 Franconia Rd, Alexandria, VA 22310

In addition to our course marshals, there will be Fairfax County Police Officers ensuring the safety of the runners on South Van Dorn Street.

There is plenty of parking on school grounds. After parking, make your way to the track to join the runners at the start.

Timing & Awards
All participants will have a race bib, however, in the spirit of this being a celebration to recognize the dedication and hard work of the RunFit Kidz participants prizes for finish times will not be awarded.

Finish times for the RunFit Kidz participants, alumni, and additional children under the age of 12 will be officially recorded and distributed after the event by the coaches.

Finish times will not be recorded for adults. We want to recognize the efforts of the children.

Post Race Refreshments
This year, each participant will receive a post-race goodie bag stuffed with a variety of prepackaged items. Just grab a bag and go. This will eliminate the lines at the post-race refreshment table.

We will have bins for any unused, unopened food items that you or your child do not care to eat. Please deposit those items into the bins.

Water will be available along the course.
