Congratulations to all who gathered at Burke Lake Park on April 30th to participate in the Fairfax County Park Authority's for the Healthy Strides 5k/10k 10-year Runniversary! Four hundred people enjoyed a scenic run around the beautiful grounds of Burke Lake Park. The 10k run was held along a wooded path, taking runners around the lake. The 5k followed a tree-lined road through the park, that is wheelchair accessible and stroller-friendly. Both courses are USATF certified.

We Love Giving Back to Parks
