Dulles, VA (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
On your mark, get set … GO! Join employees from the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott as they participate in the 2013 Dulles Day 5K: On the Runway.
All proceeds from the 5K will help support the Special Olympics Virginia and the Committee for Dulles Community, the Committee for Dulles Community Outreach and the Washington Airports Task Force. Runners will have the unique opportunity to run on the flattest, fastest course in the area –the actual landing strip at Dulles International Airport.
Wanting to give back to and support the local community, officials from the Dulles, VA, hotel will be handing out bottled water, power bars and bananas to runners at the end of the race course. The Dulles Airport hotel, a gold sponsor of the race, also will donate 14 gift cards valued at $25 to $50 for the winners.
In addition to the gift cards awarded by the Washington Dulles Airport hotel, two round-trip tickets from United Airlines, good for flights anywhere in the continental United States that the airline flies, also will be awarded to the top male and female participants.
The hour-long event starts at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013. The registration fee is $35 until Sept. 11. There will be no race day registration, so runners should be sure to sign up early by visiting http://prracing.racebx.com.
To refuel after the race, runners can dine at the Dulles hotel’s Aviate Bar and Grill serving American classics with a creative twist. Other nearby dining options include American Café, historic Clyde’s of Reston, M&S Grill and McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood & Steaks.
Race participants from out of town or who don’t want to have to get up extra early to drive to the airport can stay at the Dulles, VA, hotel for a sound night’s sleep. Deluxe rooms afford guests luxurious beds topped with down comforters, custom duvets and cotton-rich linens for quality rest time.
