Come out May 11 and support the Becky Love Foundation, at their first annual Mother’s 5k for Mental Health. This great event will begin and end at the Turner Farm Park, 925 Springvale Rd, Great Falls, VA 22066. The race will begin at 8:00 am and will follow along an out and back certified 5k course just outside the park.

The 1k fun run will be $10 and $15 on race day. All participates of the 5k who register before May 1 will receive a commemorative race shirt. If you registered after May 1, shirts will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

Bring your horse or pony to Turner Farm on Mother’s Day and ride in a 5K course around the cross country course.  The ride will end at the Riding Ring, where we will have gymkhana games for all to enjoy.  $40 before March 31, $45 until reg closes, $50 on race day.
