Registration for the Dulles Greenway’s first annual race, Run the Greenway, is now open. The inaugural race will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2021 and start at the Dulles Greenway’s Mainline Toll Plaza. Runners can choose a 5K or 10K distance, there will also be an 800-meter Kids Fun Run and a virtual race option.
