Rise Run Shine Running Festival


Sat March 31, 2018
Location: Annandale, VA US 22003 Directions
Type: Trail Race
Event: 6 hour
This event is for a bit more experienced runners and those, who would like to go a little further but are not sure how far they can go. Timed events are perfect for that since a runner is not "chasing" a distance but rather going against time. Runners can finish their run anytime during those 6 hours, even though we'd like to see them go all the way till the end.
Runners will run the 5K course and will notify a loop recorder each time they return to the start/finish line. The race is over when last lap is completed anytime before 2 pm.
There will be a designated area at start/finish line for picnic chairs, drop bags, coolers and other needed gear to leave.
Runners can keep going or take breaks between loops; that's up to each one of them.
Start Time: 8:00am EDT
End Time: 2:00pm EDT
Registration Limit: 13 spots left.

Event: 3 hour
This event is a "smaller", "half" version of the 6-hour run and it is for those, who are still a bit intimidated with an idea of running 6 hours straight and don't want to "quit" in the middle of a race. Signing up for this option may be a little less scary and once you are done and if you still want to run some more you'll have an option to join the 10K race.
This race is as well geared towards a bit more experienced runners and those, who would like to go a little further but are not sure how far they can go. Timed events are perfect for that since a runner is not "chasing" a distance but rather going against time. Runners can finish their run anytime during those 3 hours, even though we'd like to see them go all the way till the end.
Runners will run the 5K course and will notify a loop recorder each time they return to the start/finish line. The race is over when last lap is completed anytime before 11 am.
There will be a designated area at start/finish line for picnic chairs, drop bags, coolers and other needed gear to leave.
Runners can keep going or take breaks between loops; that's up to each one of them.

Event: 5K
This is NOT a typical 5K course that you may encounter at most urban races in our area. Almost the entire course is on gravel roads and single trails. It offers challenging 120 feet of elevation gain, lots of roots, rocks, leaves, fallen trees, and stream crossings etc. There is also a lot of wild life from deer and foxes, encounter with which may not be so probable during the Festival hours, to snakes and ticks, which won't necessarily hide. Depending on weather and temperature.
Course will be marked with marking paint and, where necessary with additional signs and streamers.
Start Time: 9:00am EDT
End Time: 11:00am EDT
Registration Limit: 26 spots left.

Event: Kids Fun Run
This run, which is around a mile long, is for the youngest. If they can walk they are eligible. They may be accompanied by an adult but that's not mandatory. The course will be a loop, mainly flat, 1/3 gravel road, 1/3 single trail and 1/3 pavement. There will be people at main turn points to direct runners.
We hope to see many children to take a part at this run with their parents, grandparents, siblings, friends or alone. Each finisher will receive a prize.
Start Time: 10:00am EDT
