Come join us for the third annual Try Or Fail Spring Forward races! The 1-mile course will be run on the Workhouse Arts Center property starting and ending at the baseball fields going out and back. The 5K and the 10K races will both start from the Workhouse Arts Center as well, beginning on road and transitioning into the Cross Country Trail towards Giles Run before turning around to return to the Workhouse Arts Center.  The grounds of the previous Lorton Reformatory have been repurposed by the Cultural Arts Center and houses famous pieces of art by local and renown artists which truly is a site to see during the year.

Giving Back - Part of the proceeds for this event are going towards donating to the No Kid Hungry campaign.

Runners Receive - A Performance Event T-Shirt and a Race Medal if you're registered by March 28th. Runners will also be receiving a chip timed event. We will have some extra T-shirts for individuals who register after that date, but it will be as a first-come basis while supplies last.

Allowed - Strollers and walkers are more than welcome to participate and join the event. Our goal here is to get everybody moving and to come together for a good cause while adding a fun atmosphere. 

Race Day Registration - There will be race day registration for individuals, but we ask you to arrive early enough before the race if you plan on using this option.  This will allow us enough time to get you registered and ready to go, but T-shirts and Medals can't be guaranteed here as we are ordering prior to the event.

Packet Pickup - Will begin at the event one hour before the race starts.
