Fall in Falls Church means get your running shoes on. The annual “Run for the Schools,” a 5k race through Falls Church sponsored by the Falls Church Education Foundation, is this weekend.

Start time is at 8 a.m. on Sunday, September 17 at 300 Park Ave.

There will be prizes for the fastest female and male, as well as age category prizes. All participants will receive a minimum of: a $5 Original Pancake House gift card, free bagel & shmear from Einstein bagels, free slice of Flippin’ Pizza, a coupon to Elevation Burger, and a free Dri-Fit t-shirt.

Participants can choose to either walk or run the race. The course also includes a one-mile loop for any walkers and runners who don’t want to do the full 5k.

The price is only $15 for students 18 and under. To register go to: www.fcedf.org/runfortheschools or fill out this flyer.

Come out and support the FCEF and your public schools for a fun, family-friendly event.
