The St. Rita 5K and Fun Run is back!

After Covid-19 caused the cancellation of last year's event, we are happy to be back in action in 2021. The race will go on — we hope as an in-person event on Saturday, October 30, in Alexandria. Check back soon for more information on this year's schedule of events. All information below is TENTATIVE.



We are planning for an in-person race in 2021. However, if events should force our hand, we will carry on with Virtual 5K & 1K races open to anyone, anywhere. Should that happen, you will still receive all the great race benefits (aside from being on the course together), including: the 2021 T-shirt, our participant Swag Bag, the satisfaction of supporting a good cause, and guaranteed entries in our prize raffle, where up to $1,000 in gift cards will be awarded. In lieu of being able to award all of our age-group finisher prizes, we will set aside a number of finisher awards for the fastest GPS-verified virtual times submitted to us post-race; more details will follow if we must go virtual. No refunds will be granted in the case of the in-person race being replaced by the virtual event.   


Avoid the lines on Race Day morning and pick up your packet ahead of time! Onsite registration and packet pickup will be available at two times during Race Week:
Weds., Oct. 27, from 3 - 7pm at St. Rita School, 3801 Russell Rd, Alexandria (enter via rear parking lot) 
Saturday, Oct. 30, from 7 - 8am near the race start line
