Registration is now open for the 13th annual RUN! GEEK! RUN! 5K. The race will take off in Alexandria, Virginia, on September 27, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. The 5K event has fast become a community tradition, with all proceeds benefiting select Alexandria-based charities
This year, RUN! GEEK! RUN! will support The Child and Family Network Centers (CFNC), established in 1984 by mothers in public housing when 17 of their children failed kindergarten. The founders were so successful, CFNC's first class went from failing to advance a grade level, to being recognized as gifted by their public school. From there, they've grown to serve 139 kids across eight different classrooms in Alexandria's poorest neighborhoods. To date, they have helped more than 4,000 families.
Co-sponsors for this 5K run are, once again,Ironistic and Hudson Studio. Ironistic and Hudson Studio are Alexandria-based firms that have long been involved with RUN! GEEK! RUN! and share a deep commitment to supporting their community whenever and wherever they can.
Race director and Ironistic CEO, Rita Foss commented, "Our RUN! GEEK! RUN! 5k has always been a blend of health and wellness, technology, and giving back to the community, and this year we couldn't be more proud than to center our support around CFNC. Their impact on Alexandria families has been nothing short of life-saving, and we're happy to contribute to their success."
The 5K race is a USATF-certified course, beginning and ending at the south end of Alexandria's Main Line Boulevard. Awards are handed out to the top three male and female finishers as well as the top three male and female finishers in 5-year age group categories.
