2nd Annual Celebrate America 5K

America 5K

Independence Day is right around the corner, and you can celebrate the with American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180 in Vienna, Virginia. You don’t have to head to the legion for the celebration, and you don’t even have to wait for the Fourth of July for the fun. Join in the 2nd Annual Celebrate America 5k at Vienna Centennial Park on June 30 to show off your patriotic side. This event is hosted by the American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180, and tickets are $35.

When you run or walk this 5k course, you won’t just get some exercise. You will do your part to raise awareness for everything the American Legion does for the community and the veterans. This is a terrific way to show some American pride on Independence Day.

About the Race

This race will start on the west end of Centennial Park. You’ll run across some rolling hills and even run up a couple of major hills. You’ll also tackle some curves before you finally settle onto flat land. The race will be moderately challenging, so you might want to do a little training beforehand. The top three male and female finishers will win an award, so it’ll be worth putting a little time into training before the race begins. Wouldn’t it be nice to walk (or run) away with an award?
