Come out and support your favorite PTA/PTSA/PTO or Charity!

The ArcticHalf (renamed from the Arctic Dash) is the perfect trail running race. The Potomac river provides scenic views as you go along the course. Starting from the main pavilion at Algonkian Regional Park (by Volcano Island), the participants will run along the Potomac Heritage Trail and back for a great outdoor cold-weather adventure. The trail is completely tree-lined with some exposed roots and a good mix of dirt and paved paths. 

A portion of proceeds will be donated to the PTA/PTSA/PTO/BOOSTER or Charity of your choice!*
