Description

This family-friendly event is going VIRTUAL for 2021! The Fix a Leak Family 5K brings awareness and attention to our rivers as a means of recreation and conservation each year. Information on tackling water leaks in your home, as well as general water conservation tips, resources, and rebates, will be provided digitally to all race participants as part of the water conservation efforts of the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County Service Authority, and Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority for Fix a Leak Month! This is a FREE virtual 5K race you can do on your own during the month of March. We will provided some suggested routes from previous Fix a Leak Family 5K races so you can enjoy the Rivanna River. Although we can't run this race in person, we hope you still help us chase down those leaks and stop the "Running Toilet"!

The Event is part of the Fix a Leak Month Events sponsored by the City, ACSA, and RWSA. All events are FREE and the 5K resources and materials will all be provided digitally. We will be selecting several lucky winners that participate in any of our Fix a Leak Events to receive a special Water Conservation Prize. This race is target for those that live in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County in Virginia.
