Now that we have officially crossed over from winter to spring it is time to get out of the house and go outside for some much needed fresh spring air. What better way to accomplish this task –and help out a cause– then to run/walk in a race? Haven’t you ever wondered what it would be like to run alongside a super hero? You don’t have to wonder anymore! You can sign up for one of these great races listed below. Some of them are super hero themed and some are more focused on just getting you up and active. Whichever you choose to run or walk in will surely be a good time!  So take a look at the sites and click on the video link to see all the fun that is to be had this April and May of 2015.

A great opportunity to race comes from Crystal City; which has an event for the month of April called the Crystal City 5k Fridays and is sponsored by Pacers. You could run in all 4 races or pick the friday that works best for you, there is a race on April 3,10,17,and 24th. You can find out how to get involved with this race for this friday or the next by clicking here to gain more info on this Crystal City fun!

A 5k & Fun Run is happening in our nation’s capital on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at Hains Point DC. This event promotes the idea of being a “Hero for Youth in DC’s Foster Care”, that is, it is a celebration of the everyday heroes who make a positive impact in the lives of the youth in the DC’s foster care system.  What a great reason to come out and race along side those heroes –in super hero costumes of course (not required but welcomed)!  Click here to find out more on how you can get involved and make an impact in young lives.  Also, check out this video on the race to see just how fun it will be!

Osbourn Highschool Manassas City is having a  Soaring Eagle 5k /1mile fun walk on April 18th.  The goal of this event is to raise funds for the athlete scholarship programs. They will be welcoming runners, their families, and friends to their Fifth Annual Soaring Eagle 5K Run. This event is sponsored by the OHS Athletic Boosters and will take place on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at Osbourn High School located at 9005 Tudor Lane, Manassas, VA 20110.

Another awesome race is taking place in Loudoun County, promoting a SuperHero 5k Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run. This race takes place on Sunday, April 19, 2015 beginning at 8 a.m. This event is also superheroes themed and though it is not required to wear a mask or costume it is more fun to do so. What’s cooler than to be dressed up as a superhero and fight for what you believe in? Absolutely nothing. This is a great event that invokes the superhero in us all; we may not be fighting crime, but we are fighting for a good cause and kicking those “winter blues” away!

We know that you are excited to lace up and race now, but here are some key things to remember when you are out there: make sure that your shoes have the proper support for your feet and your ankles (very important), stay hydrated, and have fun!
