10K

The Jim Schatz Memorial 10K (formerly the Loudoun 10K Race) will be held Nov. 12 at Camp Highroad, 21164 Steptoe Hill Road, Middleburg.

The race benefits Boulder Crest Retreat, the nation’s first privately funded rural wellness center dedicated exclusively to combat veterans and their families, and the Pets for Vets program, which rescues, trains and pairs former shelter animals with U.S. veterans who would benefit from a companion animal.

Sky Meadows State Park in Delaplane will sponsor the Veteran’s Day 5K run/walk from 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 11. Participants should park at the Turner Pond parking area.

Registration is $35. Fifteen percent of the proceeds will be donated to Boulder Crest Retreat, the nation’s first privately-funded rural wellness center dedicated exclusively to combat veterans and their families.
