Santa’s been training for this all year. What about you?
The 6th annual Cap Tech Run With Santa 5K takes place this Sunday, Dec. 4, at Reston Town Center.
Here is what you need to know:
- The race begins at 8:30 a.m. You can run as an individual or a team. All teams must be pre-registered.
- Online registration will close Friday, Dec. 2 at 8:00 p.m. Attendees can also register in-person, however.
- Packet pickup is at the Potomac River Running Store at Reston Town Center on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 7 to 8 a.m.
- The course starts and finishes on Market Street near Fountain Square. Affected roads include Town Center Parkway, Cameron Glen Drive, Fountain Drive, Reston Parkway, Sunset Hills Road, Market Street and Explorer Street.
- There will be a free kids “fun run” (it goes a few hundred yards). For the fun run, registration will take place on race day. Little participants will receive a finisher medal for running the race. The fun run will take place around 9:30 a.m., after the 5k but just before the awards ceremony.
- There will also be a costume contest with prizes. Runners are free to don festive suits or elf costumes. Go nuts.
