This 5K run/walk travels through the quaint town of Wakefield, Virginia and out through the surrounding countryside. The streets and county roads are well-maintained for a comfortable run. There will be turns, small hills, and a nice straightaway for the competitive runner, exercise enthusiast or those new to 5K races.

Our race benefits our students and programs that promote a strong college preparatory education.

The fun run is just a bit short of a 1 mile course.
