Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Join the NOVA Running Club for our annual 5K race at Bluemont Park! A fast out-and-back course on the W&OD trail in Arlington, this is a great opportunity for a low-key weeknight race. Come shake off the heat and support the club and your fellow Northern Virginia community runners!
A fast out and back 5K course on the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in Arlington, VA. Limited field size keeps this race very relaxed (and not crowded on the trail).
Race starts at 6:30pm on Tuesday, August 14, 2018.
There is limited parking at the park but there is plentiful neighborhood parking. Overflow parking is available in the neighborhoods.
