Plant Powered 5k

If you are around Springville on August 3, don’t miss the Plant Powered Movement 5K and 10K races. Race time is at 7:45 AM for the 10K and 8:00 AM for the 5K. Registration fees are $40 for the 10K and $25 for the 5K. Runners will receive a finisher’s medal and t-shirt at this chip-timed event. Walkers, strollers, and leashed pets are welcome to attend the event.

This movement is benefiting 501(c)(3), a non-profit with a mission to educate the public about the amazing benefits of a healthy, plant-based lifestyle. They are an all-volunteer organization that seeks to promote the use of food as medicine, enabling people to take control of their own health to prevent, halt, and even reverse most chronic diseases.

The money raised at the 2019 Plant Powered Movement will assist them in raising awareness by fostering local communication through the Facebook Group; their YouTube channel called “Healthy Vegan Food” which highlights local restaurants & food vendors; and other media outlets. They are continuously planning fun local events such as this race and the BIG annual Fairfax Veg Fest.

The races will take place at Lake Accotink Park located at 7500 Accotink Park Road, Springfield, VA 22150. For more information, email
