Register to Race

This 5K race winds through the Greenbriar Community in Fairfax, VA with a Start and Finish behind the Total Wine & More in the Greenbriar Shopping Center followed by a post-race party at Dogfish Head AleHouse (just across the parking lot from the Start/Finish Line). Each participant will receive a super-cool race t-shirt, a FREE BEER after the race (for participants over 21), and a goodie bag.

Please note that dogs are not invited to particpate in the race this year, but are more than welcome at the Dogfish Head Alehouse All Day Party. Should you need a dogsitter for during the race, please contact our Event Coordinator.

Become a Fundraiser

You can help raise even more money for HART by collecting pledges. When you sign up for the 5K through RaceWire, you will have an opportunity to become a "fundraiser" and set up a customizable page to share with friends and family. Prizes will be awarded to the top pledge raisers. We can't continue our lifesaving work without you, so please use your network to help save lives! Every pledge, large or small, will make a difference.
