Friends of Reston Fall 5k

Our inaugural Friends of Reston Fall 5K was held on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at Brown's Chapel Park and was a great success!

 

This annual 5k is open to all ages and participants are welcome to run, walk, or stroll. Race t-shirts are provided and medals are awarded in a variety of categories. The race raises funds for youth scholarships and enrichment in Reston Association programs.

Friends of Reston is grateful for the generous support of the 2021 Fall 5k sponsors. CACI International as Gold Sponsor, CDW-G as Silver Sponsor, Marnie Schaar– Compass Real Estate as Bronze Sponsor, and for Reston Association’s support in organizing the first Friends of Reston Fall 5K.
