Come out and join us for one of the best fall half marathons in the area- Run With WIFLE Half Marathon and 10K. New this year is the WIFLE 10K where runners will complete the loop around Burke Lake with the half marathoners. Races will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2018, on a USATF certified course around picturesque Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, VA., located outside of Washington, DC. All proceeds benefit the WIFLE Scholarship Fund. Course is on a mix of wooded trails with crushed stone and paved paths circling beautiful Burke Lake and Lake Mercer. Whether it is the views of the crystal blue lake or the serenity of tree lined trails, this race is truly inspiring. There will be five aid stations serving both water and sports drink every 2-3 miles. Awards will be provided to the top three male and female half marathon finishers and top three male and female 10K finishers. Gift certificates for top three age group winners. Race will have both male and female cut technical t-shirts, finisher medals and a post race celebration. Great prep for those fall marathons or chance for a new PR. Avoid the crowds and noisy bands. Experience the pure joy of running in the Fall in Northern Virginia.
No matter what your reason for running, know that profits from this race go directly to the Women In Federal Law Enforcement (WIFLE) Foundation Scholarship fund. This fund provides scholarships for 4-5 college students pursuing studies for a career in law enforcement and related fields. The future of agencies like DEA, Homeland Security, Border Patrol and National Park Police, to name a few, need qualified, dedicated men and women to protect this great nation. So invite your friends and family to join you in running for this great cause.

Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. and the WIFLE Foundation, Inc. are both commonly known as simply WIFLE. WIFLE has been in existence since ICWIFLE in the 70's when it was an interagency committee formed by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Treasury to address attracting and retaining women to the federal law enforcement positions. WIFLE incorporated a non-profit organization in June 1999 as Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. to better continue the work of ICWIFLE. The WIFLE Foundation, incorporated in 2006, is the educational arm for WIFLE providing Annual Leadership Training, seminars, and Scholarship Programs. The WIFLE Executive Leadership Institute (WELI) established in 2011 provides immersive leadership training sessions for GS Grades 13, 14, 15, and SES (and State, county and local equivalents) which are held in conjunction with the Annual Leadership Training. To this day, WIFLE continues to be the only non-profit in the United States dedicated to addressing reasons why women remain underrepresented in Federal law enforcement.
