Running to help others!


Dear Friends of the Arlington Bunny,                     

We would like to take a minute to thank you for participating in the Bunny Hop—either as a runner, walker or volunteer!     We hope you enjoyed the fun, family atmosphere of the Hop and block party, and we hope to see you next year (Saturday, April 18, 2020).  Please do help us spread the word.

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 year in 2018, over 600 peiople including racers, volunteers and entertainers participated and all net proceeds from the race (OVER $9,000) was donated to Bridges to Independence.  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.
