Fall in Love 5k Walk/Run

October 29

Break out your running or walking shoes and join us on Saturday, October 29th for our 10th Annual Fall in Love 5k Walk/Run at Nationals Ballpark.

Come walk or run with us and enjoy the ballpark like you never have before. Start the 5k through the parks concourse before moving out and around the beautiful riverfront neighborhood, then back to the park where you can access the Nationals dugouts, snap a few great shots to share with family and friends, and fun activities for the kids.

Proceeds from the event help Special Love continue to provide a community of support to children with cancer, and their families in the Washington metropolitan area through free camps and engaging programs, educational scholarships and emergency financial assistance.

A family friendly event welcomes participants, ranging in ages from toddlers and young adults, to the young at heart

While we are excited to host our 10th Annual 5k in person, the safety of our participants, families, staff, volunteers, and vendors is our highest priority.

To make the day safe and fun for all, we encourage everyone to be fully vaccinated, and ask each participant take a home COVID test 12 hours before attending to ensure you are not a risk to others, especially to those who may be immunocompromised.

Special Love is working with the Nationals Ball Park to provide guests with additional space to limit crowding, while ensuring CDC sanitation guidance are in place.
