Lace up those sneakers and get running to support our schools! We are looking forward to getting back to Cherry Hill Park for our annual FCEF Run for the Schools event! There will still be a virtual run for those who would rather run on their own. The in person 5K will take place Sunday, September 24, at 8:00 am. The USATF Certified 5K course winds through the tree-lined streets of historic Falls Church City. The course is a mix of hills and flat stretches, a little something for every level runner.  There will be a water stop along the course.  The course also includes a 1 Mile loop for runners and walkers.  Strollers are welcome!  No bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades or dogs please. All participants will receive a race shirt and other promotional items.
