Spend Yourself® 5k Run/3k Walk
November 18, 2017
Racing to feed the hungry!
About Spend Yourself®
Inspired by Isaiah 58:10, which challenges us to spend ourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, Spend Yourself is a long-term, concerted effort to address both spiritual and physical hunger around the world. Starting as a food pantry in Falls Church serving the local community, Spend Yourself® has expanded to fight hunger in Haiti and India.
The out-and-back USTAF certified course follows a flat portion of the W&OD Trail through the City of Falls Church. The race is professionally timed. The 3K turnaround point is located at the halfway point on the trail. The entire course is marked, and volunteers will guide you through a few street turns to and from the trail. You will have supporters along the entire route. As a community race focused to feed the hungry, we encourage families, groups and clubs to complete this event together. We are stroller and pet friendly. We are a stroller and pet friendly!
The main purpose of this race is to fundraise for our three mission areas - Falls Church Food Pantry, Child Development Centers in Vijayawada, India and the community of Savane Plate in Haiti. The registration fees mostly cover the costs of the race. Learn More about how to get started on asking friends and family to sponsor you!

If you register after November 5, then we will do our best to make sure you have a t-shirt, but we cannot guarantee to your size.
