‘Ape’ Race Planned Sunday in Leesburg

An unusual 5K race is coming to Westpark Golf Club in Leesburg.

The Apesh*t 5K race is set for this upcoming Sunday, Nov. 6. During the event, teams of two compete in mini-contests along the race route. Skills will be tested in darts, cornhole, putting, and pong toss, and teams that do well in these mini-events can have time subtracted off their overall race time. Teams are encouraged, but not required, to dress in costume.

A celebratory spread, including food, beer and entertainment, will be available to participants following the race. A portion of race proceeds benefit the Fisher House Foundation, which provides free or low-cost lodging to veterans and their families receiving treatment at military medical centers.

Online registration is open through Nov. 4. To register or for more information, go to apeshit5k.run.
