On Sunday, October 1st, our neighborhood will be hosting our second annual Hilly Chantilly 5k. This chip timed, USATF certified 5k race begins and ends at the corner of The Plaza and Shenandoah Ave. Despite the moniker, total elevation gain for the entire course is approximately 100 ft. Starting on Shenandoah, heading east, the course crosses The Plaza. Families with strollers are asked to assemble at the rear of the starting line group. It is a fast start, featuring a long downhill on Shenandoah Ave. The first right turn is slightly more than a half mile away onto Lorna St, which takes runners on a winding southward path including the Lorna Loop. At the first mile marker, Lorna Loop terminates on Kingsbury Drive – three successive left turns take runners from Kingsbury to Bascom St. to Wyanoke Ave. The course will be well-marked to guide runners down Wyanoke to Chantilly Park and back to Bascom. With a right then left turn, runners will encounter the second mile marker on a gentle incline up Laburnum Ave. The water station will be near this point. Two right turns bring runners downhill on Bay St., followed by two left turns up the final hill on Chesterfield Ave. A right turn on The Plaza leads to a sprint finish.
