Upcoming Events

Race Brambleton Series – Upcoming Events

The Race Brambleton Series was inspired by the many runners in the community who make use of the trails. It began in 2013 with the idea of promoting several family-friendly events throughout the year to include 5Ks, 10Ks and even a Kids’ Triathlon. In addition, the series promotes a Triple Crown Finisher medal, which is custom-made each year and is awarded to participants who complete at least three races in the series. There’s still time to get your Triple Crown, as three races remain this year:

  • Two By Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancers – Sunday, October 1: Your involvement will help to further critical research that can move the needle towards better medicines and a cure. 100% of net proceeds will go to support the work of the Canines-N-Kids Foundation and Smashing Walnuts Foundation in their missions to fight cancer in our most vulnerable populations – children and man’s best friend. Register here.
  • Zombie Run – Saturday, October 28: Are you a runner or are you a zombie? You choose! In this slightly scary timed 5k race, you can race through our tunnels and trails dodging zombies or you can live out your nightmares of being a zombie and chase runners while you try and eat their brains (or flags in this case). Learn more and register here.
  • Lace Up For Learning – November 11: This family-oriented fundraising event encourages a healthy lifestyle and engages local communities in support of their schools. Race benefits Brambleton’s schools (Creighton’s Corner, Legacy, Moorefield Station, Brambleton & Stone Hill Middle, and Briar Woods & Rock Ridge High). The more who run for a school, the more money the school gets! Learn more and register here.
