“We were so excited to be continuing the event this year [and] were thrilled to have another fun race,” Campbell said, “We are grateful to all the support from our sponsors and volunteers this year.”
The event is organized by the Reston Historic Trust & Museum and all proceeds from the event benefit the organization.
