Sold Out

Due to the popularity of the Healthy Strides 5K/10K, this event has sold out. Please stay tuned to this website for information about the 2025 race in September.

The Fairfax County Park Authority 2024 Healthy Strides race — May the 4th Be With You! — will be held on May 4, 2024.


The 5K course follows a tree-lined, paved road through the park — it is wheelchair and stroller accessible. 
Runners who want to step up their challenge can take on the 6.2-mile wooded trail that circles the lake.  
The event also features a Kids Dash (ages 2-10). These are short dashes to the finish line for 5K participants’ kids.  Kid Dash participants, their family and friends must wait until the 5K and 10K are over before leaving Burke Lake Park. We welcome you to enjoy the playground or cheer for the 5k/10k runners, as well as partake in the post-5k/10k refreshments and party!
