Louise Archer Elementary School Sunshine 5K and Fun Run

This was sent to us by Jennifer Elmas for Louise Archer:

The Louise Archer Elementary School PTA will host a 5K/1K to promote healthy behaviors and raise much-needed funds for our school. The race is on Sunday, October 17 in Central Vienna, VA, on the W&OD Trail, beginning at the intersection of Dominion Rd. and Ayr Hill Rd. The race will begin at 8:00 a.m.

Registration on the day of the event begins at 6:30am, but pre-registration is highly encouraged. This is the very first Louise Archer Sunshine 5K/Fun Run and we are looking forward to a fantastic event that will reinforce our sense of community and give the kids a great reason to exercise.  The course (on the W&OD trail) is flat, fast, and walker and stroller friendly.  There will be a DJ, great refreshments and pre- and post-race activities.  We hope everyone will come out and run, volunteer, or cheer.

This inaugural event has it all:

-        Fast, flat course for the 5K and 1K that will have supporters along the way and a half-way water station

-        Unbelievable pre-race rock & roll warm up, post-race refreshments and snacks, and some great raffle prizes

-        Neighbors and families coming together to help support the school and promote healthy activities

We are still accepting sponsorships for the race.  Anyone interested should email LA5KSponsorship@LouiseArcherPTA.org

Participants can register online at http://la5k.louisearcherpta.org/ for the 5K or 1K. Early registration is encouraged as prices will go up on October 9th. Online registration closes on October 13th, so to ensure your T-shirt and a place in Louise Archer history, register soon.

This event has been planned to show our children that being healthy and having a sense of community spirit are key parts of our lives. Whether this is your first race or your 100th race, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are making a difference, and what better way to do that than with 250 of your closest friends.
