Before you even start to think about what your New Year’s Eve plans will entail, there is one event that extreme revelers and in-bed-before-midnight folks can get behind. The Fairfax Four Miler kicks off at 6 p.m., giving you just enough time to get a run in before your festivities (even if that means falling asleep at 10 p.m.).

Register soon to be guaranteed a spot in the race and to be assured you get the popular cozy sweatshirt premium in your swag bag. Entry costs $43, and you can even register three people and get one free. The Fairfax Four Miler also includes a post-run pizza party in Old Town Hall, and that might be the only bash you need to ring in the New Year. Visit the Pacer’s Running website to register, get information on the packet pick-ups and participant services, and for all the details on the course.
