Virginia Peninsula is hosting its 2nd Annual Community Day 5K!

Join us for a fun-filled day connecting with our community, students, and alumni for our 2nd annual Community Day 5K! 
The event will take place at the beautiful Matteson Trail. A three-mile nature and fitness trail that encircles The Hampton's Golf Course, named in honor of Ms. Tess Matteson who was instrumental in its development and establishing a VPCC scholarship in 2010 to benefit Virginia Peninsula Community College nursing students.
We will have family-friendly activities, a photo booth, music, refreshments for participants, contest giveaways, and prizes. So grab your best running shoes and bring a friend!


Participants who register by October 7 will receive a commemorative 5K t-shirt.
All participants will receive a participation medal.

Proceeds from the event will help Virginia Peninsula Community College continue to meet its most pressing needs, including student emergencies, research, technology upgrades, student retention, and enrollment initiatives, athletics, and growing academic programs.

Walk, run, and have some fun while positively impacting our students
