Please join us to honor Michael and raise money for Holy Family Academy!
Michael Pennefather, a student of Holy Family Academy, died at age 12 after battling multiple illnesses and disabilities. He colored the world around him with his infectious smile, optimism and joy for life. This year we commemorate the 15th Anniversary of Michael's passing. As always, this fun and family-friendly event gives us an opportunity to remember a remarkable young man, encourage fitness and raise necessary funds for on-going projects at Holy Family Academy, the school Michael loved.
This year we are excited to announce that the event will be held on the beautiful grounds of the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia at 9535 Linton Hall Rd. Bristow, VA 20136. ***Register by midnight on 09/18/2022 to save $5.00 and guarantee a race shirt. ***
This event will follow the Fun Run/Walk. The gun will sound at approximately 9:30am. Participants may run or walk the course; we ask those planning to walk to start at the back of the pack so those competing for time can go first. The course is a two loop route that runs throughout the scenic grounds of the Benedictine Sisters. The course is mainly flat and fast with little elevation change and the terrain is easily managed with jogging strollers. The course is mainly paved with some flat grass surfaces. Participants will loop the course two times. Volunteers will be stationed throughout the course for assistance and there will be a water station. Prizes will be given for the top three Male and Female finishers. Prizes will also be awarded to the top Male and Female finishers according to age group. ** NOTE: Your results, along with a Finish Line Photo will be emailed/texted to you on race day!
This non-competitive event will be held before the 5K. The gun will sound at 9:00am for the Fun/Run Walk. The fun run is a shorter, well contained run/walk with lots of fun prizes for the participants.
