Here's a video of our very successful race on April 14, 2018. 


The race's mission is to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy a fun, healthy, spring weather activity together and to raise support for local Arlington charities. The race is an Outreach mission of the Clarendon United Methodist Church. For our first two years in 2018 and 2019, over 1200 people including racers, volunteers and entertainers participated and all net proceeds from the race (OVER $20,000) was donated to Bridges to Independence.  For 2020, we are adding a second beneficiary, OAR (Offender Aid and Resortation).  Proceeds come from registration fees, donations, and sponsors. Additionally, several businesses have provided support in the form of donated services and loaned equipment. Join us for a romp through the historic and eclectic Ashton Heights neighborhood near Clarendon.
