Annual McLean 5K fundraiser returns in October

Online registration for the annual McLean 5K is now open (via McLean Community Center)

Registration is officially open for the 14th annual McLean5K. 

The event — which is designed for runners of all abilities — is set for Oct. 1 at 8 a.m. The start and finish line is located at McLean Square Shopping Center (6631 Old Dominion Drive).

The run will benefit the McLean Community Foundation, a local charity that supports the community through grants and projects, from “fire trucks to playgrounds to social services,” the event page says.

Sponsors include Century21 New Millennium, the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce and other organizations. 

The registration packet will be available for pickup one day before the race at the Old Firehouse (1400 Chain Bridge Road) from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and the morning of the race from 7-8 a.m.
