The Thanksgiving-day event draws a huge crowd to the Lyon Park community each year. Since its inception, the race has generated more than $1 million in support for organizations that include the Arlington Food Assistance Center, Arlington Thrive, Bridges to Independence and more.
The race was founded in 2006 by Brian Webster, then the pastor at Christ Church, and his wife Diane. The church’s sponsorship continues under current pastor Billy Boyce.
For his long service as race director, Mark Riley earlier this year was among those honored with the Arlington Community Foundation’s William T. Newman Jr. Spirit of Community Award.
