ADDITIONAL RACE DETAILS

Additional Details:

Packet Pick-Up: To avoid the race day rush, you are encouraged to pick up your race bib, t-shirt and bag on Saturday the 10th at our packet pick-up from 12pm-6pm at Road Runner Sports, located at 1120 W Broad Street Falls Church, VA 22046. NOTE: We will allow a friend/family member to pick up your race packet, but they must have your name AND registration number.

Come into Road Runner Sports Falls Church to pick up your bib and more! Don’t miss out on the greatest offer in store, just for RACE PARTICIPANTS! $10 OFF minimum $30 purchase OR VIP Family Members SAVE 25% OFF EVERYTHING (see coupon for details)! Not a VIP? Call and ask how you can become one.

Parking: On race day, due to the crowds expected and concerns about pedestrian traffic, parking at SMS will only be permitted on-site by race staff and volunteers. Runners will NOT be permitted to park on-site at Sandburg Middle School.

  • If you live near the event, you are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to walk or ride a bike. There are bike racks at SMS.
  • If you drive to the event, you are encouraged to park in one of the church parking lots we have reserved nearby or on Fort Hunt Rd. We will have plenty of volunteers to guide you to parking. And look for a parking map in your bag at packet pick-up.
  • For race staff and volunteers who choose to park on-site, you won't be able to drive your vehicle off the site until the event is completely over. This is due to safety concerns from the Fairfax County Police Department based on the number of pedestrians expected.

Pre-Race Arrival and Activities: Plan to arrive early on race day to visit our Vendors, get a Starbucks Iced Tea or a cup of Mission BBQ lemonade, enjoy the FC Police Neighborhood Bike demonstration, FC Police helicopter flyover, and see our Opening Ceremony starting at 1:30pm. We plan to add more pre-race activities in the coming week and will keep you updated!

When You Head Home: Plan to stop by 5845 Richmond Highway (corner of Route 1 and Fort Hunt Road) to visit Fired Up To Help*! They will be selling pulled pork, bbq chicken, pork baby back ribs, beef brisket, coleslaw and chips with all proceeds benefitting the Travis Manion Foundation! 20% off with a race day bib. Eat there or take your food to enjoy at home! 

*Fired Up to Help is a 501c(3) organization based in Fairfax. They provide hot meals to responders and our local community in the immediate aftermath of a disaster in our region. They also support other 501c(3) charities by hosting BBQ fundraisers. We are thrilled to partner with them and appreciate their support!
