The Boy Scouts will be serving a breakfast to the veterans. The breakfast at the American Legion’s Patriot’s Hall is optional for all the runners and non-participants A modest donation for the breakfast is appreciated. There will be an Awards Ceremony hosted by our own Sgt. Rob Jones, (USMC Ret.) for the 5K at the end of the race. Other prizes and drawings will occur at Patriot’s Hall after the race.
Middleburg 5K Course
The Middleburg 5K course will take you though some incredible scenery on the campus of The Hill School in the heart of Middleburg. The race begins and ends next to the athletic fields. Runners will head west from the starting line on the road, then turn onto the gravel path around the outdoor science center, pond and fields. A small portion of the route is grass between the amphitheater and the Flagpole. On your second lap you will head west to the fields and back to the road to the finish line right where you started. See the map below.
The 5K is for all runners, joggers and walkers.
Dogs (on leashes) and strollers are welcome on the route.
