This Race is for the Birds
Since 2002, we have held an annual running event, called "This Race Is For the Birds," on the beautiful 538-acre campus of the National Conservation Training Center. Originally a simple 5K run, the event has been expanded to include two professionally timed trail races: one 4.9 miles in length and another that covers 7.7 miles. There is also a self-timed, 2-mile run/walk for families and a 1-mile fun run for children. The children's fun run is free. There is a fee to enter the other portions of the event.
All proceeds are used to support Potomac Valley Audubon's programs for children, and all fees are tax deductible. The event is typically held in the spring and registration begins Thanksgiving Day. Register here and join the fun!
