Update on Reston Runners programs for 2021

Your Reston Runners board and program leaders hope to conduct some of our programs and events in the summer of 2021, such as the Women's Training Program, the Seize the Day 5K, Youth in Motion, Interval Training, and 10 Weeks to 10K. But all of these are subject to progress in the fight against COVID and our ability to get permits. Some programs may not be possible, some may be redesigned or delayed. Please keep checking back with us.

Congratulations to all 2019 Race Participants!


Due to the coronavirus, we are unable to conduct our Women's Training Program or secure a venue for our 2020 race, so unfotunately we are forced to cancel our 2020 event.  Please plan on racing with us next  year in 2021.
