Description

The First Annual Pleasant Valley Aquathlon 5K is presented by Chick-fil-A Sully Plaza of Chantilly!  

Come out for summer fun at the Pleasant Valley Pool.  Enjoy a refreshing pool swim and run with our Swim/5K Aquathlon or skip the water and stay dry with a 5K Fun Run!

 

Proceeds directly support the Pleasant Valley Pool in Chantilly! We've also partnered up with two great non-profit charity partners which you can also donate to. The local Western Fairfax Christian Ministries Food Pantry, which was formed in 1987 by members of 12 Chantilly and Centreville churches, WFCM provides food and financial support to reduce hunger and the risk of homelessness among residents of western Fairfax County. Our second charity partner is the Major Lucas Legacy Foundation. The Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation was founded in 2015 to bestow scholarships to Americans for the advancement of educational goals and self development thereby strengthening and benefiting the community at large through individual enhancement.

About the Pool

The Pleasant Valley Pool is a premier outdoor pool in the Pleasant Valley Community.  The facility provides aquatic recreation for all ages.  For the little ones there is a dedicated kiddy pool to safely swim, splash and play in a their own shallow pool.  The main pool consists of a large shallow area before heading into the largest section of the pool with eight lap lanes.  And finally for those more adventurous there is a large deep area with a spring diving board!

The Pleasant Valley Pool is home to the Piranha's Swim Team. The Piranha's compete in Division 16 of the Northern Virginia Swim League and the Western Fairfax Developmental League.  The members of the Piranha's develop confidence in the water through proper swimming techniques, gain team spirit by teaching discipline, responsibility and commitment, and of course have some fun!

The Pleasant Valley Recreation Association (PVRA) was established over 30 years ago to provide a first class facility and social functions for its members and their families in and around the Pleasant Valley subdivision in Chantilly, Virginia.  Given the age of the pool there are a few capital improvements necessary to maintain this amazing aquatics facility.  Unfortunately, pool memberships alone cannot cover the yearly maintenance and also the capital improvements.  All proceeds raised from this event will go directly to improve the Pleasant Valley Pool to ensure it will provide fun and entertainment to the community for years to come.  This year the PVRA hopes to raise enough funds to repair a pool leak that is driving maintenance costs up each season in additional water and chemical treatments.  Thank you for supporting this amazing community resource!
