NOVA 5K Race


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.

Online registration until 11:59pm on August 19, 2019. Race day registration also available.

Thank you to our contributing sponsors!
