Join the NOVA Running Club for our annual 5K race at Bluemont Park! A fast out-and-back course on the W&OD trail in Arlington, this is a great opportunity for a low-key weeknight race. Come shake off the heat and support the club and your fellow Northern Virginia community runners. Limited field size keeps this race very relaxed (and not crowded on the trail). There is limited parking at the park but there is plentiful neighborhood parking. Overflow parking is available in the neighborhoods.

In addition to the 5K run, we are also hosting a Kids Fun Run as well as a 2 Mile Walk event in collaboration with WalkArlington. The Kids Run will start at 6:15pm and the Walk will start at 6:30pm right after the 5K race starts.
