Whether you enjoy the thrill of competition or are just looking for a fun family adventure, you don't want to miss this 25th annual event. The Navy Federal 5K Run/Walk starts and finishes at Navy Federal Headquarters in Vienna with a course that meanders through town.

This race also offers runners post-race refreshments, entertainment and random prizes!

All participants who bring their dog must follow these rules:

  • Keep your dog on a 4-foot leash. NO retractable leashes.
  • You must pick up after your dog if they have a nature break (waste disposal bags will be provided).
  • Competitive runners will line up in the front and will take off very fast. If you or your dog is new to this type of event, please line up in the middle to back of the pack. If your dog is new to this type of event, please give them plenty of room (near the back or to the sides of the pack) to ease into the race start.
