Run, walk, or roll a 5K/1k and become a Sprout Possibilitarian! Whether you plan to roll our 1k course, complete your first 5K, or you come out to reach a personal best, join us! If you would rather, you can run, walk, or roll in your own “neigh”borhood by participating virtually. The purpose of this great community event is to raise funds for Sprout Therapeutic Riding and Education Center, a Loudoun-based non-profit that changes lives through partnerships with horses.
The Sprout 5k is being held to raise funds and awareness for Sprout Therapeutic & Education Riding Center in Aldie, Virginia. Sprout is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization that offers high-quality programming that meets the physical, cognitive, social and emotional needs of individuals with a wide variety of diagnoses to include autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and mental health needs. Sprout currently serves over 150 individuals weekly with the devoted support of over 100 weekly volunteers. Sprout is currently the 2023 “Best of the Best” Equine Facility in Loudoun County. All proceeds from the Sprout 5k support subsidies for participants, scholarships to families with financial needs, facility support, horse care and adaptive materials.
Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm, 42920 Broadlands Blvd, Ashburn, VA 20148. The start and finish lines are on the grounds of Clyde’s Willow Creek. The race will follow a certified 5k course through the neighborhoods of Broadlands. See course map here. Or, if you are more comfortable participating on your own, choose the virtual option and walk/run/roll your 5k/1k anywhere you want!
