Logo 2024 Healthy Strides. Enjoy 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 invites you to join your community and friends for this event on May 4, 2024.

Registration for the race opens on November 1.


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

Runners who want to step up their challenge can take on the 6.2-mile wooded trail that circles the lake.

The event also features a Kids Dash (ages 2-10). These are short dashes to the finish line for 5K participants’ kids. We welcome you to enjoy the playground or cheer for the 5k/10k runners, as well as partake in the post-5k/10k refreshments and party!

Register for Healthy Strides today!
