5K
Runners of all skill levels are invited to dress in green for a vibrantly verdant race in Warrenton this March. Don your greenest garb, limber up, and come downtown for the 2020 Molly’s Wearing O’ The Green 5K!

When and Where

The 5k will be held on Sunday, March 29. Day-of registration will take place at 7 p.m., and the race will follow at 8 a.m. The race will lead to Molly’s Irish Pub, located at 36 Main Street, Warrenton, Virginia 20186.

Molly’s Wearing O’ the Green 5K

The course will lead participants through historic downtown Warrenton, with street-level views of the scenic Old Town. If you wore green out for Saint Patrick’s Day the previous week, you can get some more mileage out of your holiday attire for this green-themed run.  After the race, awards will be handed out for the top overall male and female finishes, as well as the top male and female veterans.

Registration and Packet Pickup

Registration costs $30 per participant from now until the day of the race. If you register before March 15, the organizers guarantee you will receive a commemorative race shirt. After you’ve registered, you can pick up a race packet at Potomac River Running (=PR=) Fairfax Corner on Saturday, March 28 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. You can also pick up your packet at 7 a.m. before the race. You’ll find Potomac River Running located at 11895 Grand Commons Avenue, Fairfax, Virginia 22030.

Boulder Crest Retreat

Proceeds from the 5k will benefit Boulder Crest Retreat, a wellness retreat designed to help combat veterans and first responders recover from serious issues and embrace happy, fulfilling lives. They currently offer a variety of post-traumatic growth programs and operate picturesque retreats in Virginia and Arizona. The privately funded Boulder Crest Retreat provides these services free of charge, and proceeds from events like the 5k allow the organization to continue to serve with all the resources they need.
