It's with great excitement that we are announcing the expansion of the Run for the Dream event. The 2015 event will still feature the Run for the Dream Half Marathon on Sunday, and the 8K Run/Walk on Saturday, but this year it will all start on Friday evening with a 5K Run/Walk event on the William & Mary campus. The 5K will begin at 6:30pm. With the addition of the 5K event will also come the addition of a Thursday packet pick-up time, from 4pm-7pm at the Woodlands Conference Center.
Adding the new 5K on Friday also means an additional multi-race challenge. We will still be offering the very popular Patriot's Challenge (8K & Half Marathon), and new to this year will be the WARRIOR Challenge (5K, 8K, Half Marathon), in which participants will run a combined 21.17 miles.
Check out the 5K and Warrior Challenge pages for more details!

Patriot Running Festival
With the expansion of the weekend, we felt the weekend really needed a title that would be inclusive of all of the events, as well as capture the essence of its location in Williamsburg, thus the Patriot Running Festival. The Run for the Dream Half Marathon will continue to be the featured event of the festival.
