Ready! Set! Run for Shelter! Carpenter’s Shelter, in association with Pacers Events, is proud to host our 5th Run for Shelter on November 22, 2015 at 8:00am, featuring a 10K, 5K and Fun Run. All proceeds from the event benefit Carpenter’s Shelter and go to ending homelessness in our community. Run for Shelter will be held along Eisenhower Ave. in Alexandria, VA, with the race beginning at the USPTO building. For more details about Run for Shelter, visit our website
How to Get Involved:
Run: Run for Shelter is a great way to burn a few calories before your Thanksgiving feast! Both the 5K and 10K courses are flat and fast and suitable for all skill levels and ages. Have little ones that want to join in on the fun? Sign-up for the Fun Run, a family-friendly course that is approximately a mile.
