This event returns for the third year straight to One Loudoun, and will feature fun for all ages. Races are open to those of all ability levels (joggers, walkers and experienced runners). Throughout the race, family fun activities will be available, including music, a bounce house, team challenges, kids art, face painting, massages at the finish line, a splash pad and more!

Following the race, Ringing In Hope participants will also receive food at the finish line provided by Firehouse Subs, as well as a free 5 oz. pour of beer from World of Beer (must be 21). At the completion of each event, prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female overall winners in each race, as well as the top three male and female finishers in the following age groups: 11 and under, 12-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, and 80 & over.

One hundred percent of all funds raised will go directly to Boulder Crest Retreat. Items are also being collected leading up to the event on behalf of Boulder Crest Retreat. For a list of these items, please visit the race website.
Vendor space is also available for anyone wishing to have a display, however, space is limited. Volunteers are also needed to help accommodate growing crowds and assist with the race course duties as well as family-fun activities.
