Loudoun Half Races

Loudoun Half Races The Loudoun Half & 8k are running races and a Family Festival held in the early Spring in Ashburn, VA, benefiting local HS running & athletic programs.
(15)

As running becomes a faster-growing sport across the country, many of the high schools in Loudoun County, (VA) do not have the necessary funding for their track & field and cross country programs to allow student athletes to fully explore the sport. The Loudoun Half Marathon & 8k and The LoCo Challenge raises money to supplement the schools' budgets so that they may enhance these and other athletic programs. The race is organized by the Ashburn Area Running Club (AARC) a local group of running enthusiasts. Please consider participating or join us as a volunteer for this early-Spring community event!

Good info from our partners at Inova Loudoun Hospital.

For many women, a heart attack may feel like a strange discomfort in the back or some other easily ignored sign, instead of crushing chest pain.

Don't miss your chance to meet the mighty Chewbacca just past milepost 2 in the 8k (and just before milepost 4 in the 1/2). Free high fives, hugs and photos. For you elite runners, the subtle glance out of the corner of your eye is welcome!
Hi! Do you anticipate that race day registration will be available for the half marathon on Sunday?
Where can I check to see if I have registered for the 8k? I couldn't find a spot on the website. Thanks!
I just signed up for the Half Marathon in April and will be joining Claire JB again! Wahoo! 😃
Perfect Weather for Loudoun Half Race Weekend! On your mark! Get set! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Is it possible to walk the 8k? I am still not allowed to run but I am thinking of walking instead.
Sadly, I need to switch from the Half to the 8k race. How is this done?
I was just wondering if the 8k and/ or half marathon course are stroller friendly...?
Who's in? Don't let the price increase get cha!
