About the Race
The 2016 Round Robinson 5K is a community event open to any runners or walkers. The proceeds benefit Robinson Crew Booster Club, the Robinson Crew Team, and Special Operations Warrior Foundation. http://specialops.org/
Robinson Crew is recognized as a varsity sports team, but, it receives no financial assistance from the Fairfax County Public School System, Fairfax County, or the State of Virginia. Robinson rowers and parents volunteer thousands of hours each year so that our student-athletes can participate in this exciting activity which builds not only strong bodies, but also teamwork and mental discipline. It costs approximately $1,900 per rower to cover the equipment, coaches’ salaries and other fees needed for a successful season. Robinson Crew Booster Club is a non-profit organization.
A portion of the proceeds from the 2016 race will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full financial assistance for a post-secondary degree from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical, or trade school; as well as educational and family counseling to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation also provides immediate financial assistance to severely-wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel and their families. Robinson Crew is also planning to host an Iron Oars challenge in March to raise additional funds for this charitable organization. See www.ironoars.org for more information.
The race is held on a certified 5K course. Runners and walkers will follow a course through neighborhood streets around Robinson Secondary School.
Awards and Prizes
Award certificates will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers of the race in each of the following age categories: 10 & Under, 11-14, 15-18, 19-25, 26-35, 36-49, 50+
Pre-race activities will kick off at 8:00 with a flag salute and the singing of The National Anthem, followed by a pre-race warm stretch and warm up. The race will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Refreshments will be served to all participants immediately following the race. Awards and prizes will be given out at this time.
Racing timing will be done by Commonwealth Race Management. The ChronoTrack timing system will be used to score the race. The system will use a disposable B-tag (Bib-tag), which will be secured to each runner's bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the finish line.

Round Robinson 5K 2015
Thank you for making our 18th annual Round Robinson 5K a success!
Once again, Mother Nature cooperated and provided us with great weather. We appreciate the continuing support we receive from the community in the form of runners, sponsors, and volunteers. The 5K race is provides the Robinson Crew team with funds to offset the costs of running a varsity level sports program. In Fairfax County, crew teams operate as club teams and do not receiving funding from FCPS. Our program is successful because of the high level of support and commitment we receive from the community.
It is always a pleasure to see all the young, enthusiastic runners who join us from Fairview Elementary School. This year, the Fairview running club brought 58 youth runners to our race and additional family members and friends.
