May Day 5K- Run It!

The Lake Ridge RidgeRunners are a great group, and I’ve mentioned them before.  Whether you’re an experienced runner (they’ve got some Ultra Marathon Runners!) or you need to walk your 5k, they’ve got peers, positive reinforcement, and encouragement for you!  I never ever ever could’ve run the Cherry Blossom without starting with the RidgeRunners.  

One of the great events the RidgeRunners host is the May Day 5K.  This is a great event, especially because it’s so kid-friendly!  If your Prince William County (or wherever) elementary school has a running club, this is a fantastic event to run with the kids!

Here are the details:

This event is an annual community 5K run and walk through Lake Ridge neighborhoods.  We encourage participants of all ages and fitness levels.  Enjoy a fun-filled day of friendly competition, music, great post-race food, an award ceremony prize raffle, face painting for children, and much more!
