8th Bodies in Motion Sunday in Warrenton

Bodies in Motion usually attracts more than 300 participants. Last year’s event raised more than $55,000 for area nonprofit organizations.
The eighth annual Bodies in Motion Race – 5-k, 10-k & Fun Run will take place Sunday morning, Nov. 10, in Warrenton.

The Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center and its foundation organize the event, which has raised more than $215,000 for area nonprofit organizations.

Registration fees are $35 for the 10-k run/walk, $30 for the 5-k run/walk and $10 for the 1-mile fun run.

All three courses start and end at The WARF (Warrenton Aquatic and Recreation Center).

The fun run begins at 8 a.m. and the 5-k and 10-k start at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 10.

“This is a run for all,” says Jill Smith, race co-director and director of HR at Blue Ridge. “We enjoy bringing the community together and giving a reason to run: each other! The race is for experienced and beginning runners and walkers alike – from athletes to seniors and children.”

The event includes a children’s activity zone and an aerobic race warm-up led by John Ferguson, certified fitness instructor at the WARF. Town Councilman Sean Polster will emcee the event. Staff from Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center and Blue Ridge Physical Therapy will run/walk.

The event typically attracts more than 300 race registrants and about 100 participating businesses, as sponsors and/or exhibitors.

“We need to do good deeds, and by doing so, we propel others forward to do the same,” said Jeff Hollis, CEO of Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center and treasurer of the foundation. “We hope to see another good turnout at this year’s race from the communities we serve – including Fauquier, Culpeper and Prince William – which will, in turn, help us give back.”

Local organizations set up exhibition tables at the WARF and live music rounds out the morning. Hot breakfast and coffee will be available to registrants. Bubbles and face paint will be available for children.

“It is really moving to experience an event like this and watch it come together,” Ms. Smith said. “So many local and regional businesses contribute. The generosity and outpour of support for community non-profits that operate in the communities we serve is gratifying.”
