Manassas Campus faculty, staff and students have established a new 5K Group for 2016. The group’s focus will be to walk or run a 5K every month in 2016. After several of the group members participated in a few 5Ks in 2015, they thought creating a group would be a fun way to socialize, set fitness goals and also help out the community at charitable race events.
So far the group has 22 members from the Manassas Campus. Several of the members participated in a race on December 13, 2015, that took place on the Campus. The first official race for the group was January 3, the sixth Annual Frozen 5K in Gainesville, Virginia.
There is a spot for anyone interested whether you are a runner or walker, even if you cannot make it to every race. The goals are to motivate and support other members of the group and also to get up and get moving in 2016.
If you are interested in joining, please ask to be added to the Facebook page: NOVA Manassas 5K Group. For additional information, please contact Jenni Barlet at email@example.com.
