This 4th-annual event, including the Helltown Half, Shenandoah Leaf Peeper 10K, and Festival of Leaves 5K all in one day, will have you tackling the hills in and around Front Royal during the 48th annual Festival of Leaves. With the Shenandoah Mountains and the South Fork of the Shenandoah River as the backdrop at the time of year when the radiant colors of the changing leaves are simply stunning, the miles will fade quickly under your feet as you knock out this two-loop 13.1-mile, single-loop 10K course, or picturesque 5K course.
A portion of the proceeds from all distances goes to support the Warren Heritage Society, which is the Front Royal/Warren County community’s historical society, museum, and archives. It was established as a nonprofit organization in 1971, and the Warren Heritage Society has held the Shenandoah Valley’s Festival of Leaves ever since.
Make a weekend of it! Warm up with the Festival of Leaves on Saturday, October 13, enjoying the parade and the historical displays, arts and craft vendors, live entertainment, a children’s area, tours of historic homes, living history interpretations, and food concessions on East Main Street.

The area has so much to offer, from running a fab race, to attending the Festival of Leaves, hiking or canoeing, dining at a local eatery, or visiting a winery.
