Registration opens April 9 for the 2021 Arlington Bunny Hop 5K, an outreach effort sponsored by Clarendon United Methodist Church to support local charities.
Because of public-health conditions, the race – traditionally held around Easter – will be presented in two formats later in the spring:
• An in-person race with staggered starts on the W&OD Regional Trail at Bluemont Park will be held on June 12. Awards will be presented in various age groups, along with “finisher medals” for all children who complete the race.
• A “virtual race” allows runners and walkers to take part from June 12-20 and post their times.
To date, the event has provided more than $37,000 in support to social-safety-net organizations Bridges to Independence and Offender Aid & Restoration.
