For the past two years the PVI Runfest 5K has had over 300 runners (and walkers) participating.
Lace up your shoes! It’s time to get ready for the Paul VI Catholic High School (PVI) Runfest 2014.
This year’s race will be run on Sunday, Sept. 14, at 8 a.m. For the past two years the PVI Runfest 5K has had over 300 runners (and walkers) participating.
Mark Danisewicz, this year’s Race Chairman, encourages all to come and support a great cause by participating in what is also a fun community activity. "The course is fast and certified. The long-range forecast calls for sunny skies and perfect conditions for a fun-filled morning. We hope you join us for RunFest 2014," Danisewicz said.
This year’s race will continue the Runfest tradition of raising funds for PVI’s nationally recognized Options Program for students with intellectual disabilities. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the PVI cross country and track programs.
The 5K course is a 2-loop route with a few gentle hills that starts and finishes in the PVI parking lot, located behind the school at 10675 Fairfax Boulevard. The course has recently been recertified by the U.S. Track and Field Association.
As it was last year, this year’s race will be chip-timed for accuracy. There will be traditional top-finisher and age-group prizes and random prize drawings for all participants. All race registrations, with the exception of race day, can be submitted online at: http://tinyurl.com/PVIRunfest2014. The entry fee for PVI students and faculty is $15 and $25 for all others. Registration on race day is $35 for everyone.
