Past Events

After a few years away from organizing running events we brought in September 2016 Mason District Running Festival to Annandale, VA. For event photos visit our FB page, results are available at the MDRF website

Our first event took place in 2012 - Ajvar 5K Run and Walk in Arlington, VA. It celebrated Macedonian independence and it was a fundraising event, which beneficiary was an orphanage in Macedonia. With a help of individual and corporate donors we raised around $5,000.00. Success of the event led to its multiplication a year later, when it was organized simultaneously at three locations: Arlington, VA, New York City, NY, and Ann Arbor, MI. Compared to the previous year the amount of donations for the orphanage in Macedonia doubled in 2013.
