Choose your distance (10K, 5K, or 1-mile), enlist your running buddies, and explore Leopold's Preserve on a beautiful fall evening at this 5th annual, pet friendly trail run!
We are very excited to announce that the event has expanded to now include a 10K run that utilizes 90% of the trails in Leopold’s Preserve, which gives you the opportunity to take in all the sights and sounds Leopold’s Preserve offers.
As always, the run is at twilight and includes a mini-family-festival complete with games, a face painter, a balloon sculpturist, a photo booth, local vendors, and much more for families.
For those new to the event, the race courses use the trails of Leopold's Preserve in Haymarket, Va, through forest, plains, bridges and rolling hills, with tons of great views and wildlife along the way. The start/finish is the trailhead in the Villages of Piedmont community (at the end of Market Ridge Blvd.).
All participants will receive a race t-shirt (guaranteed for anyone who registers on or before Oct. 4, 2018)
Refreshments available at the finish line to all participants
Top positions in each category receive a medal
This year race proceeds will benefit Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA), another great local charity that focuses on the rescue and placement of homeless dogs and cats in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area. FOHA relies on the support of volunteers and donations from the public to continue rescue efforts.
