Head out to Burke Lake Park on May 4th and join the Fairfax County Park Authority for the 8th annual Healthy Strides 5k/10k! Enjoy a scenic run around the beautiful grounds of Burke Lake Park. The 10k runs along a wooded path, taking runners around the lake. The 5k follows a tree-lined road through the park, is wheelchair accessible and stroller-friendly. Both courses are USATF certified.
Being a Fairfax County Park Authority event, the Healthy Strides 5k/10k is always striving to be as GREEN as possible, by using less paper and promoting recycling. We hope you’ll join in our efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle on race day (and every day) by carpooling, recycling your biodegradable racing bib, and donating a used pair of sneakers. More info on how you can get involved below in the event details.
A portion of the net proceeds from the Healthy Strides 5k/10k will help fund summer camp opportunities for children living in homeless shelters and transitional housing in Fairfax County.
The 2019 Healthy Strides 5k/10k has a theme – “May the Fourth Be with You” – since our event is being held on May 4, 2019, unofficially known as Star Wars Day. We are planning some fun activities and contests – see the ACTIVITIES tab!Register Here
