Round Robinson 5K


2014 Round Robinson 5K General Information...

Robinson Crew would like to thank the community for supporting our 17th annual Round Robinson 5K race in November 2014. 
The weather was perfect on Sunday morning as we welcomed our 363 registered runners!

The race is not only our biggest fall fundraiser, it is an opportunity for crew team members and their families to band together and support the program as rowers prepare to begin winter training. Our race would not be successful without contributions from our sponsors,  volunteers and runners.

Race results are available by HERE

Thank you again, for your support and we look forward to seeing you all in November 2015!

The 2014 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 point 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.

The general registration fee is $30.00 per runner. On-site registrations received during packet pick up on Saturday, November 8 and on race day will be charged a fee of $40.00.  Register early to receive a commemorative t-shirt.

Runner Packets and T-shirts will be available for pick on Saturday, Novembe
r 8th Specific details will be posted in late October.

This is a certified 5K course. Runners and walkers will follow a course through neighborhood streets around Robinson Secondary School.  The course map will be posted in late October.  There is no "rain date." The event will be held rain, shine, snow. In the case of significantly inclement weather, we reserve the right to alter components of the event or course to address safety concerns, or potentially cancel the event.  In such situations, there will be No Refunds of entry fees. Each registrant must accept any such risk of their entry fee.

Award certificates and prizes will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers of the race.
Additional award certificates and prizes will presented to the first and second male and female finishers in each of the following age categories:

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.
