About Our Race

Our PTA-sponsored school race is powered by DC Roadrunners. Both the 5K and Fun Run begin and end at Woodlawn Park. From Woodlawn Park, the route follows the bike path to and around Westover Park, then returns to the bike path back to Woodlawn Park.  The course has the usual Arlington-type small rolling hills.  Safety Marshals are stationed along the course. The one-mile Fun Run/Walk goes a half mile up the path and back down to the park.

There is one water station around the half-way point of the race. All races are held rain or shine. No headsets, in-line skates, bikes, strollers, or pets are allowed.

Event Proceeds:

Each year, proceeds benefit an ongoing Glebe PTA project or another community charity. More details to come on this year’s event.


Race Management and transponder timing, provided by DC Road Runners, will be used to time the race. The system uses the Chronotrack B-Tag which is attached to each runners bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and the finish line, resulting in a net time for each runner. The B-Tag is disposable and has very accurate results.
