The race will begin and end at Jiffy Lube Live, and is expected to bring more than 2,000 from more than 25 states to the county to participate, stated a release.
“The main thing we really want to promote is the fact that we have an active, vibrant running community here in Prince William County. Now we have a high-profile, distance race in our own backyard, which gives us the opportunity to showcase Prince William County,” stated President of Fun Run Racing and the event organizer Rob Dulin in a release.
