Register for the 2020 Bands on the Run 5K & Virtual 5K

Benefitting LHS and CMS Bands

Let's band together! All are invited to register for the 2nd Annual Bands on the Run 5K and Virtual 5K on Sunday, April 26 at 8:00 am. 

The event benefits the growing band programs of Langley High School and Cooper Middle School by providing critical funds for each school's programs.

All runners and walkers are welcome! Run or walk the out-and-back 5K course, which winds through a tree-lined, residential neighborhood, or join us for the short family fun walk on the Langley High School campus. Strollers and those in wheel-chairs are welcome too!

All participants will receive an official race t-shirt and goody bag. After the race, stay and enjoy live DJ music, door prizes, food and visit our sponsor booths. We'll band together and run, walk and stroll - rain or shine! (No refunds are available). 

Can't make the run? Even if you can't come on race day, you can still make a huge impact on the band programs by joining our Virtual 5K. Just select the Virtual Runner option below and we'll mail or deliver you an official race T-shirt. 

What:  The day will start with a warm up, the 5K run, followed by post race refreshments and music. 

When:  The event will be Sunday, April 26, 8:00 am   

Where: Langley HS, 6520 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA 22101
