Women-Only 5K Runs in Reston June 20

Women's Distance Festival 2013/Credit: Brian Kent Potography Women runners will hit the trails near the YMCA Fairfax County Reston Saturday, June 20 for the “Ladies Sizzle” Women’s Distance Festival 5K.

The annual race is the culmination of a season of training for the Reston Runners’ Women’s Training Program. Each spring, the low-cost WTP helps walkers become runners and runners become faster runners alongside other women in training.

The race, which begins at 8 a.m., is open to the entire community, though, and not just WTP members. Men are encouraged to volunteer to help make the race a success.

Advance registration is open through Wednesday, June 18 at midnight. You may also register at packet pickup Friday or on race day from 6 to 7 a.m. at the YMCA.

The entry fee is $35; $40 day of race.

The flat course mostly takes place on the W & OD trail and other paths, so it should not impact local roads. See the course map on the WTP website.

Packet pickup, race registration and race headquarters is at the YMCA Fairfax County Reston, 12196 Sunset Hills Rd.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
