Welcome to Rise, Run and Shine Running Festival 2018!

We invite you all to beautiful Wakefield park/Audrey Moore RECenter to share the trails, meet people, raise funds for local non-profit (Shelter House), maybe create new friendships and discover ways to support each other, and finally, to have some fun.
Rise, Run and Shine Running Festival is not a single race but an all-day running celebration, promoting healthy living and solidarity. The event starts at 8 am and last till 2 pm and gives people a chance to participate at one or more events (sorry 6-hour runners, not you:). The Festival offers two 5K races, 6-hour and 3-hour run, and Kids Fun Run for the youngest. Besides running you will also be able to stretch and do some guided exercises under the guidance of our friends at PR Performance Fitness.

Start times:
8 am: 6-hour and 3-hour run
9 am: 5K am
10 am: Kids Fun Run (1 mile)
12 pm: 5K pm

By offering such variety of options we hope to appeal to those still on a couch as well as complete novice runners but also to seasoned long distance champions and everyone in between; we’d like to see young and less young families, retirees, school kids and their teachers, walkers and ultra marathoners.

1. Check in: 45 minutes before a start of a run for all events.
2. Registration: online and at the Festival at least half an hour before an event. Each runner/walker must register and sign a waiver.
3. Registration Fees (Include a ceramic mug with a spoon - see below)

  • 6-hour run: $50 ($60 after March 1)
  • 3-hour run: $40 ($50 after March 1)
  • 5K: $30 ($40 after March 1)
  • Kids Fun Run: NO fee

4. Course and Course Markings: Course will be marked by arrows spray-painted on the ground, signs and/or streamers.
5. Course Surface: The courses is 97% on trails, fire or gravel roads, which means lots of roots, rocks, leaves etc.Runners may need to cross/jump over tree logs, cross streams, and climb some steep hills. There is approximately 120 feet of elevation gain on the 5K course. Start and finish for all distances will be the same - at the Northern side of the Audrey Moore parking lot.
6. Aid Station: there will be only one aid station, located at start/finish line and will offer water and some snacks (bananas, PB&Js). Cups may be available but we encourage you to bring your own bottle to help reduce waste.
7. Timing: No chips or any of that modern stuff. We will do it the old fashion way (manually) with help of modern technology. So, it certainly won’t be to a one hundredth of a second correct, heck, it may even not be to a second correct, but in general, you will have pretty good idea about your run time.
8. Parking: There is plenty of free parking available right next to start/finish area.
9. Be Green: in an effort to reduce amount of trash we encourage participants to bring their own water bottles or reusable cups.
10. Refunds: There will be a 50% refund if a request is made by to March 15. After that day NO refunds will be provided.
11. Food: There will be some snacks (bananas, PB&Js) available during the entire event and some more substantial vegan dishes at the end of the event at 2 pm (for 6-hour runners and everyone else who will stay until then).
12. Restrooms: There are restrooms at the start/finish line (in the Audrey Moore RECenter)
13. Driving Directions: Park is called Wakefield Park/Audrey Moore RECenter. Address is: 8100 Braddock Rd, Annandale, VA 22003
14. Dogs: This is a dog friendly park. So, feel free to bring your dog(s) with you.
15. Kids: The little ones are welcome to join you. If you want them to officially participate that is fine as long as you sign a waiver on their behalf. If they join you unofficially that’s perfectly fine too.
16. Strollers: NO. The course is NOT stroller friendly. Too many roots, rocks, tree trunks, loose gravel. Simply not safe. Safety first. All participants are asked to respect all park rules and regulations.

Wakefield Park/Audrey Moore RECenter offers many other outdoor and indoor opportunities: indoor swimming pool with showers, jacuzzi, sauna, volleyball, handball and racquetball courts, playgrounds, fitness, gymnasium, skate park, and outdoor tennis courts. A guarantee for an active day for entire family. Please be aware that for most of those activities/facilities a separate fee applies.

Race Giveaway

Each participant (excluding Kids Fun Run, they will get their own awards) will receive a ceramic mug with a spoon at the event. No show, no giveaway - sorry, we cannot ship them.
