Healthy Strides 5K, 10K & Kids Dash Draw a Crowd

There were hundreds of race participants and well-wishers at the Healthy Strides 5K, 10K and Kids Dash at Burke Lake Park on Saturday, April 30, 2022. The race returned from being a virtual event due to COVID-19 to live and in person.

More than 300 runners and walkers had the opportunity to enjoy beautiful spring weather, heart-pumping group warmups, cool green commemorative 10th anniversary T-shirts, a finisher medal and even a celebratory cupcake at the finish line.

Healthy Strides is so much more than just a race; it’s a fun way to stay healthy and to encourage your friends and family to join in the experience with you. It is an event for novice and expert runners alike, and it also welcomes wheelchair runners, strollers and even dogs.

Healthy Strides 2022

This year’s race was sponsored by Giant, with generous support from the Fairfax County Park Foundation and Park Authority Rec Centers.
