Register for 2021 St. Andrew the Apostle 10K/5K/Kid's Fun Run

St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic School
will hold its 12th Annual 10K, 5K, and 1-Mile Fun Run on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Our event began in 2008 and continues to be a community-building fundraiser to help the PTO enhance student academic and social experiences. 

Register to run with us in person at St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church (6720-B Union Mill, Clifton, VA 20124) Or choose to run it Virtually on the course of your choice. 

The STAA 10K/5K USATF certified course is a perfect fall marathon tune up race or a chance to challenge yourself and friends/family.  The out and back course features minimal turns and long straightaways to build a great running rhythm and conquer some rolling hills.  The asphalt course is in great condition for even footfalls so you can focus on the competition and scenery and not worry about any uneven road surfaces or debris.  Enjoy the quiet and mostly tree lined course through the majestic Balmoral Greens neighborhood.  After a reasonable left - right turn combination to get out of the St. Andrew the Apostle School parking lot, open up your stride on the 2.3-mile straightaway on Balmoral Greens Ave. before your next turn onto Balmoral Forest Rd.  The 5K turnaround is approximately 1.4 miles down this first road.  The 10K turnaround is approx. 0.6 miles down Balmoral Forest Rd.  On the 10K course, challenge yourself and your friends for the KOM (King of the Mountain) title on a to-be-established segment of the Balmoral Green Ave. straightaway.    Bring your friends and family, enjoy a great fall run and the post-race atmosphere.   Cheer on the kids in the Fun Run, which will start from the school parking lot at 9:15.  Kids will enjoy a themed 1-mile, untimed fun run heading down Balmoral Greens Ave, turn around after a half mile and return to the school.
