New Year's Races in Northern Virginia

Get out and run these local New Year's races.

Some people will be clinking their glasses of champagne or waking up late on New Year's Day. Others will be enjoying a runner's high and working up a sweat during these races on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Running a race is a great way to bond with friends and run in a high-energy environment. It's a healthy way to ring in the New Year - just save your champagne for after the run!
