The Dulles Greenway will host its inaugural "Run the Greenway" race on Saturday, May 1.
The family-friendly event will provide a socially-distant convening opportunity for runners and their families in Northern Virginia, while fundraising for over 20 local charities.
The race will start and finish at the Dulles Greenway’s Mainline Toll Plaza, and runners can choose from a 5K, 10K, 800-meter Kids Fun Run and a virtual race option. Race participants will be released in groups of 25 to maintain social distancing.
