FAQs

You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers. We want to make sure your Fairfax 5K race-day experience is as best as it can be.

Packet Pick-Up

Packet pick-up location will be provided at this link once it is finalized with the vendor.  Time for packet pick-ups will be Friday Sept 22 from 4-8 PM.

Please try to pick up your race packet on Friday as Saturday morning will be chaotic at the start line and you don’t want to miss the start of the race!

Refreshments

We will have: water, fruit and bagels at the start/finish area.

Cones/Course Information

In order to open up the county roads as soon as possible, we must abide by the operations plan set forth by the Fairfax County Police Department. They will instruct the cone truck to start picking up cones when the last runner passes the 1.5 mile mark (approximately 20 minutes into the race) at which point there is a very wide sidewalk along the rest of the course to the finish line. Should the cone truck catch up to you while running or walking, the police will ask you to move safely to the sidewalk to finish the race.

MYLAPS BibTag

Instructions on how to wear the MYLAPS BibTag can be found in this video .

Strollers

Runners with Jogging strollers are permitted on the course. Walkers with “traditional” strollers are not.

Water Stops

There won’t be water stops along the course, but there will be refreshments at the start/finish line. Please bring your own water if you think you’ll need it during the race.
