NEW FOR 2015 - This 5k is a USATF-certified course (VA15038RT - course map located HERE) starts and finishes at Fairfax County Government Center, and runs on the surrounding roads.  The change to the course was due to road restrictions on West Ox Road.

Joe Kenda.



*Your favorite Crime Dog (and ours), McGruff, will be on hand cheering you and the Kid's Race participants on!  If you're good - he may appoint you a Jr. Crime Fighter!



* We'll have DJ Bob Artman on hand, getting the party started!


*In addition to the Co-Ed Team Challenge, there is also a Public Safety Challenge among the Police Dept, Fire Dept, and Sheriff’s Office. As part of their participation in the Crime Solvers 5K, each department will have vehicle displays out for you to visit and learn more about their invaluable service to the community.
