ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Institute 10k
ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Institute and The Safety and Health Foundation are pairing up for the second time to present the ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Institute 10k in support of The Friends of the W&OD Trail, which is a citizen-driven organization dedicated to protecting and improving the W&OD trail.
The race will take place on August 1st at 6:30 pm on the W&OD Trail from Old Vienna Train Station, to Hunter Mill Road, and back. This is Washington area’s only GREEN race on a unique flat shady course. The event emphasizes how runners can work to improve the environment, to recycle, reduce, and re-use. To emphasize our commitment to conservation, all our printing is two-sided on recycled paper, we offer on-line paperless entry, you may bring your used (but not abused) running shoes to packet pick-up for recycling, and our t-shirts are printed by using an environmentally-friendly non-polluting ink fusion process, rather than traditional screen printing. And of course, we will be recycling any cups used for hydration throughout the race event, as well as separating recyclable material and food waste for composting.
ACE Physical Therapists and ACE Massage Therapists will be on hand for free injury assessments, pre/post-race stretching, and to provide free Sports massages. Environmental organizations will also be present to exhibit their environmentally-themed businesses and products. Cash prizes are awarded to the top runners!
Also, attend the event to take part in a great community service project. We will be collecting gently used shoes to donate to the MoreFoundation Group. With every 600 pair of shoes donated, they are able to fund 12 months of hands-on sustainable agriculture training for a family in Ghana. We will also be collecting clothing to be donated to Good Will.
