Becky Epton Memorial 5k

Registration is now open for the 2017 Becky Epton Memorial 5k!  We will be donating a portion of our registrations to the ALS Association again, and appreciate your participation and support.

Potomac River Running will be helping us out again, and you can register online here!  We will be posting a map of the course and information about the weekend shortly.

Race Day Info

1) Packet Pick Up
You are welcome to pick up your race packet this afternoon from 4 pm to 7 pm at Pleasant Valley UMC, or just pick it up tomorrow morning when you arrive for the race.  There will be a hard copy of the course in there, but I have also attached a copy to this email.  You can also view the course online here.   These are also your opportunities to pick up your race shirt.


2) Church Entrance

The way we are situated on Route 50, you can only access the church parking lot by way of Route 50 East.  If you are on Route 50 West, the easiest way to make the U-Turn to come back to the church is by making a U-Turn at Tall Cedars Parkway.  


3) Parking

We’ll have ample parking available in the grass lot behind our church.  We’ll have signs and some folks out, but the simplest way to pull in is by coming in our main entrance and staying to the left as you work your way back.  Please try to be at the church by 7:45 AM, as we want to start the race at 8:00 and not have to avoid cars pulling in.


4) Course Info

The Virginia State Police will be watching the traffic for us in portions that involve street crossings.  We aren’t allowed to have roads closed however, so please stay aware of your surroundings while running or walking.


There will be chalk markings along the course, as well as some balloons to help any tricky spots.  We will also have a water station near mile 2 provided by the good people of the Primrose Academy.


5) Awards

We will have awards for the top three male and female finishers, as well as for our youngest runner and most seasoned runner.  We are planning on giving out the awards around 9:15-9:30, so feel free to stick around if you finish beforehand.


6) Other Info

We have bathrooms on site for your use in our Fellowship Hall.  This is the same room that you can pick up your packet and shirts and is the closest to the parking area.


7) Additional Donations

If you would like to give an additional gift towards the ALS Association, you can do so by visiting our registration table and letting the volunteers know that you’d like to do so.
