22nd Annual Clifton Caboose Twilight Run
Area residents looking for a fun weekend activity won’t want to miss the 22nd Annual Clifton Caboose Twilight Run, a 5K run and a 1-mile run/walk held just outside the scenic town of Clifton, Virginia. This year’s Caboose Run is on Saturday, June 1 at 6:00 p.m.
The Clifton Betterment Association (CBA) will host the Caboose Twilight Run, whose name reflects Clifton’s railroad history as well as the event’s early evening starting time. The family-friendly race typically draws 350-400 runners and walkers while raising around $6,000 in preservation funds for historic Clifton.
A post-race party with refreshments, live music and an awards ceremony will take place at the Red Barn near Clifton’s Main Street area. The fun includes the presentation of the annual Caboose Award, a light-hearted tribute to the last-place runner or walker. First-place CBA members in the men’s and women’s categories receive an award named for the late Jaime Netschert, a beloved Clifton resident who was a long-time supporter and participant in the Caboose Run.
