Event Description

 Come out and join us for one of the best fall half marathons and 10K race in the area- Run With WIFLE Half Marathon and 10K.  Runners will complete the loop around Burke Lake. Race will take place on Sunday, September 22, 2019, on a USATF certified course around picturesque Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, VA., located outside of Washington, DC.   All proceeds benefit the WIFLE Scholarship Fund. Course is on a mix of wooded trails with crushed stone and paved paths circling beautiful Burke Lake and Lake Mercer.  Whether it is the views of the crystal blue lake or the serenity of tree lined trails, this race is truly inspiring.  There will be five aid stations serving both water and sports drink every 2-3 miles. Awards will be provided to the top three male and female half marathon finishers. Race will have both male and female cut technical t-shirts, finisher medals and a post race celebration. Great prep for those fall marathons or chance for a new PR.  Avoid the crowds and noisy bands. Experience the pure joy of running in the Fall in Northern Virginia.  

Want to run but not able to make it to the race?  No worries join us virtually. You pick the day and route and we send you your shirt and medal.  Sign up for the virtual race at http://www.wifle.org/  Use the virtual run link.

No matter what your reason for running, know that profits from this race go directly to the Women In Federal Law Enforcement (WIFLE) Foundation Scholarship fund. This fund provides scholarships for 4-5 college students pursuing studies for a career in law enforcement and related fields. The future of agencies like DEA, Homeland Security, Border Patrol and National Park Police, to name a few, need qualified, dedicated men and women to protect this great nation.  So invite your friends and family to join you in running for this great cause.

* Race shirts not guaranteed after September 2nd.
