The 2015 Round Robinson 5K is a community event open to any runners or walkers. The proceeds benefit Robinson Crew Booster Club and the Robinson Crew Team. Our goal is 500 runners and $5,000 in sponsors ($5K for the 5K).
Rowers receive 1 service hour credit for every $10 in sponsorship they bring in. Please share this page and ask your friends and local businesses to participate and become a sponsor.
Robinson Crew is recognized as a varsity sports team, but, it receives no financial assistance from the Fairfax County Public School System, Fairfax County, or the State of Virginia. Robinson rowers and parents volunteer thousands of hours each year so that our student-athletes can participate in this exciting activity which builds not only strong bodies, but also teamwork and mental discipline.
It costs approximately $1,900 per rower to cover the equipment, coaches’ salaries and other fees needed for a successful season. Robinson Crew Booster Club is a non-profit organization.
This is a certified 5K course. Runners and walkers will follow a course through neighborhood streets around Robinson Secondary School.
Award certificates will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers of the race in each of the following age categories: 13 and under / 14-19 / 20-29 / 30-39 / 40-49 / 50-59 / 60 and over.
All registered runners automatically be entered a drawing for door prizes. The door prize drawings will occur after the race. You must be present to win.
Pre-race activities will kick off at 8:00 with a flag salute and the singing of The National Anthem, followed by a pre-race warm stretch and warm up. The race will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Refreshments will be served to all participants immediately following the race. Awards and prizes will be given out at this time.
Racing timing will be done by RaceDC Timing. The ChronoTrack timing system will be used to score the race. The system will use a disposable B-tag (Bib-tag), which will be secured to each runner's bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the finish line.5Kinfo@robinsoncrew.org
