2022 New Year's Day Eaglebrook Ultra & Food Drive

Saturday January 1st, 2022

Alexandria, VA

Official Website


On New Year's Day 2022, join your neighborhood friends for the 3rd Annual Eaglebrook Ultra & Food Drive - the shortest, most fun ultra around. Rather than ringing in the New Year with the traditional 5K, we're pushing the limits with an extra 0.1K.

The race starts and finishes at the Eaglebrook cul-de-sac (the paved over sledding hill). The afterparty will include beer, bloodies, mimosas, and New Year's Day fare.

This is a family friendly, yet unsanctioned race – a fun run with 250 of your closest friends, if you will. That means roads WILL NOT be closed, so please give cars the right-of-way, or use sidewalks, and please pay attention when crossing intersections.

Like last year, it’s $15 per person, which covers an Eaglebrook Ultra T-shirt, other swag, food, drink, and prizes. That’s generally been the right amount to cover costs, but if there's extra left over, we’ll donate it to the food bank.

Important notes for registration:

  • If you want to receive a shirt on/before race day, you MUST register by Thursday, December 2, 2021. We realize this is much sooner than in the past, but the labor and supply shortage mean we have to place the order by then. You can DEFINITELY register after that date, right up until New Year’s Eve, and you WILL get a shirt, but it may arrive after the event.

  • Shirts will be adult men's, adult women's, and youth sizes so select accordingly.

  • Some volunteer opportunities will be available in the coming days, so watch your inboxes if you're interested in being "official."

  • More details related to logistics and food collections for the food bank will be sent via email as we get closer to the race.
