Join us on Saturday, March 17th for the 2018 Fix a Leak Family 5K! The race begins at 10:00 AM!

This family-friendly event will kick off Fix a Leak Week, a national campaign by the Environmental Protection Agency. Information on tackling water leaks in your home, as well as general water conservation tips, resources, and rebates, will be featured at the race.

Course: The Fix a Leak 5K begins at 10:00 AM at Pen Park. The course passes through the Pen Park Nature Tail and winds along the Rivanna River. Throughout the course, participants will enjoy scenic mountain views. The final leg of the race loops around the Pen Park playground, making it easy for family members and friends to cheer on their fellow runners as they finish the race. There will be signs to guide you along the way and volunteers to facilitate the crossing across Pen Park Road & around turns, but please use caution during the race. The section of the course that runs parallel along the Rivanna River might be muddy due to the weather. Please wear proper shoes. The course map is provided below.

Packet Pick Up: Race packet pick-up will be available from 8:30 AM to 9:45am on the day of the event (Saturday March 17th). Please allow for plenty of time to pick up your packet and properly prepare for the event.

Awards: The Fix a Leak 5K will feature a running toilet (literally!). The first two participants who catches the running toilet and grabs a tag from the running toilet will each receive a special prize at the end of the race for helping to "catch the leak". Special awards will also be given to the overall male and female finishers in the adult and youth categories.

Additional features: Technical race t-shirts, water conservation goodie bag, and light snacks are included in the event registration. Participants also have the opportunity to win raffle prizes during the award ceremony.
