Race Day Information:
What time to arrive: The race will start promptly at 8:30 am. Please plan for some light traffic. To be on the safe side, plan to arrive by 7:30 am. Once again, food for our participants is being donated by Jason’s Deli and Hard Times Café. Our favorite DJ, Chris Rao will be turning on the tunes starting at 7 am. Tracy McMullen will warm up the crowd at 8:10 am.
Because we have so many fantastic teams signed up for the race this year, we invite each team to come to the stage between 7:30 and 8:00 am to be recognized and have their picture taken by our professional photographer. (All teams are welcome – you do not need to be listed on our Teams webpage to be recognized.)
Parking/Directions: The best place to park is the Page Avenue parking lots. (See the Directions page for detailed information about how to get to the parking garages:)
Where to go: After you park, please make your way to the grassy area in front of the Fairfax County Courthouse.
