Many thanks to our Packet Pick Up Sponsor:


Thank you for your interest in supporting our Spring 2017 5ks! Volunteers are sought May 10th - May 21st for a variety of roles, including at Packet Pick Up Events as well as registration, course marshals, water station, parking support, and much more on the day of each 5k!

Each 5k event takes over 100 volunteers to be a success. We depend on volunteers to serve as greeters, buddy runners, course marshals, manage start and finish lines, water stops, and much more. We have a job for everyone who wants to help!

Take a look at all of the volunteer opportunities and shifts for the Woodbridge 5k on Saturday, May 13th HERE. For the Ballston 5k on Sunday, May 21st, please check out the volunteer opportunities HERE.
