Announcing the Dominion Consulting Veteran’s Day 5K

The Dominion Consulting Veteran's Day 5KFall is here and that means it is time to prepare for the annual Dominion Consulting Veteran’s Day 5K and 1K Fun Run on Sunday, November 13 in Fairfax, VA. This is the third year in a row we have partnered with Potomac River Running in organizing this event. Once again, the race will benefit Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB). An amazing organization, Team RWB supports veterans as they transition from the military back to their families, communities, and lives through sharing social interactions and sharing experiences.

Veteran’s Day is a day to honor America’s heroes, all US service men and women, past and present, who help keep our country safe and free. That makes Team RWB’s work so important. With a mission to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. This mission makes supporting Team RWB through the Veteran’s Day 5K one of our premiere community outreach events each year.

A Fun Event for Everyone

The starting line of the 2015 Veteran's Day 5K

The 5k begins at 8:00 am, with the 1k Fun Run at 8:05. There is plenty of free parking in and around the Fairfax Corner shopping center. Packet pick up is available Saturday, November 12 from 11:00-3:00 at the Potomac River Running Fairfax Store in Fairfax Corner (11895 Grand Commons Ave, Fairfax, VA 22030). Or you can pick it up at the race site on Sunday starting at 6:30 am.

Dominion will have a booth and tent set up near the finish line with coffee and hot chocolate available to all runners and spectators. Additionally, our volunteers will have patriotic, temporary tattoos available for attendees of all ages to enjoy and show their patriotic spirit.

Race participants are encouraged to show support for the military branch of service that they, or their family, is affiliated with. Whichever branch of service has the largest showing of support in the race will have a donation made to Team RWB in honor of that branch. Army has “won” the past two years. Let’s see if they can complete the three-peat, or if another branch will claim victory this time around.

So join us on Sunday, November 13, at Fairfax Corner for the Veteran’s Day 5k and 1k Fun Run. If you register by Friday, October 7, you can take advantage of early registration of $30. All registered runners will receive a technical race shirt as part of their registration.

See you in November!
