Logo 2024 Healthy Strides. The Force was with the lucky registered runners who enjoyed a scenic run on the beautiful grounds of Burke Lake Park during the 2024 Healthy Strides 5K/10K — May the 4th Be With You! Fairfax County Park Authority reached the 550 maximum number of runners for the most recent race!


The 5K course followed a tree-lined, paved road through the park — it is wheelchair and stroller accessible.

Runners who wanted to step up their challenge took on the 6.2-mile wooded trail that circles the lake.

The event also featured a Kids Dash (ages 2-10), short runs to the finish line for 5K participants’ kids. We welcomed many who enjoyed the playground and cheered on the 5k/10k runners, followed by the post-5k/10k refreshments and party!

Registration was FULL for Healthy Strides 2024!

We LOVE Parks … and Giving Back!

A portion of the proceeds from the Healthy Strides 5K/10K goes to the Fairfax County Park Foundation to support the Wonder Wagon Mobile Nature Center. For information and to donate, please visit Mobile Nature Center Equity Outreach.
