ACE Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Institute ACE LOCATIONS: Alexandria | Arlington/Clarendon | Fairfax / FairOaks | Falls Church / Merrifield | Herndon / Reston | Lansdowne / Leesburg | Tysons Corner / McLean / Vienna This event, the Washington area's race, recognizes our stewardship of our environment. GREEN The unique out-and-back course runs through one of the area's first environmentally-protected zones, an undeveloped meadowland where the deer and the antelope play. The W&OD for its entire 44-mile length is a swath of green amidst urban development all around. The caboose and the old Vienna station where we start and finish commemorate Virginia's history. The race course is a narrow (12-foot) wide paved trail, mostly flat, with a brief spur into a lovely neighborhood. We offer water and aid stations at 1.5, 3.0, and 4.5 miles, as well as the start/finish. | Volunteer instructions
