Celebrate Independence Day with a patriotic race that supports our troops and their families!

This fun 5K race is a great way for the local community to celebrate Independence Day and support service members and their families! Runners of all ages can participate in the 5K race that starts and ends in Reston Town Center.

Active duty military members can represent their branch of service by racing in the event’s “Battle of the Branches” competition. Potomac River Running will make a financial donation to USO-Metro in honor of the winning branch!

Net proceeds from the event’s corporate sponsors will benefit USO-Metro to help fund critical programs and services that serve the nearly 300,000 military members living in the Washington-Baltimore region and the 150,000 who travel through local airports each year.
