      Ailene - sorry you could not find anyone. We left the blue truck to go to the start about 5 minutes before the race start.

    How will we find our Group? I didn't see anything about a Team Name, and so I left it blank when I registerd. I have not received an e-mail about where to meet?

      9am is fine. Just want to make Sure we have time to pick up packets. Not sure how baggage hold works if they even have one. Have you done this race before?

    So is anyone trying to find each other before and / or after the race? Is anyone going from the Tysons Corner area? I don't mind driving if someone wants to carpool.

      For Jill and anyone else who wants to meet together before the 5K walk/run this Saturday, I will be there NLT 9:30am in a blue pickup truck and we can gather there. I am walking (not running) and anyone who wants to walk in a group is free to join up with me too. As for afterwards, I guess we can talk about that more while there as I have not heard of any plans and being new to the area I have no suggestions to offer.

    Minor update to the details. Participants will be able to park at the race site, no shuttles. So I highly encourage car pooling if possible. Once you register you will receive all the day of details to include directions and address by Thursday.

    has anyone formed a team that I can join when I register for the 5K event?

      because of no response about a team, I formed team O4KIUASC so, well, um - you can join a team if you want! Personally I am just casually walking the course and for anyone who wants to gather together & walk as a group, I will be there by 9:30am in a blue pickup truck. You don't have to be a member of that team to join this walking group. I just formed the team for the fun of it. Note: I am not an organizer or trip leader - just someone volunteering his truck as a gathering spot if anyone wants to walk in a group with others.

    Remember that you must sign up prior to March 13th. See link above. Just saying yes to the meet up does not guarantee your spot. If you would like to create teams, the first person must come up with a team name and the rest will need to write in that team name when registering. If anyone forgets the team name or needs assistance feel free to email me at [masked] or call[masked] ext 146. Best!
