A community of runners and

walkers of all levels and abilities




The table below contains our Saturday and Sunday courses designed for Running and Walking.  Over 130 documented courses!

  • Saturdays feature two courses: a 5 mile run and a 3 mile walk.
  • Sundays feature at least two courses: a 10 mile run and one 6 mile walk 
  • Starting in late spring, we feature longer distance running course options including ones that span nature trails.
  • Please refer to the Event Calendar menu link to find the currently scheduled courses.
  • Reston has over 55 miles of pathways that cover every neighborhood and provide easy access and intersection with the popular W&OD Trail.
