Encore Stage & Studio hosts its 3rd annual 5K run/walk and kids’ 1K fun run on Saturday, October 27, 2018.
Families and community members are invited to enjoy a run on the scenic W&OD trail through Bluemont Park. Starting line begins in the south pavilion located on 325 N Manchester St, Arlington, VA 22203. Face painting and children’s games will be provided throughout the morning.
All runners and walkers are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes for the race. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes. Last year, over 120 runners participated in Encore’s fun run! Prizes were awarded for the best time, most frightening costume, the most creative costume and more. “This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the fall season while giving back to the community in a healthy and family-friendly way!” says Sara Duke, Encore Executive Director.
