This is a timed event.

In partnership with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic

Tired of running the same trails? Come out and try this new race at Prince William Forest Park. These two scenic races are well worth the cost of admission. The races wind through the service roads and trails of one of the most beautiful parks across the country. You’ll enjoy racing against the clock, your friends, your family, or just your will!

Walkers are welcome to attend this event.

Now offering a virtual run option for those who cannot make it on race day. You will receive a custom medal.
