Make 2021 your year! Whether it’s your first race or plan to be on the leaderboard, come out and enjoy this scenic, rolling 5k in the heart of Spotsylvania County. Race will start and finish at Salem Fields Community Church in Fredericksburg, VA. Race will start with a loop around the church campus and then go out and back on the nearby Ni River Landing Road.
All proceeds will benefit our friends at the Thurman Brisben Center, the region's only homeless shelter for men, women and families.
Walkers and strollers are welcome to attend this event. A VIRTUAL 5K and 1 Miler is available to anyone, anywhere, to participate with our race! You will receive your bib number and race t-shirt in the mail.
At Salem Fields, our priority is the health and safety of our community. We are closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and restrictions in our county and state and will adjust our event as needed. Masks are expected during check-in, but are not expected during the actual race. We do recommend keeping them on you and make sure to maintain 6ft of social distancing whenever possible. There is the possibility of a wave start, with waves of 10-20 runners/walkers spaced two minutes apart. We will have further updates as race day gets closer, so check your email!
