Help Us Stop the Spread of Germs this Cold and Flu Season

It's that time of year. Please be vigilant about wiping down your equipment with disinfectant spray after you finish exercising.  However, the very best way to stop the spread of germs is to wash your hands often, and/or use the antibacterial gel located throughout the facility.


Fauquier Health Wellness Center sponsors "The Well Run Race"

Founded in the spirit of celebration and hope, The Well Run Race honors the well-lived life of Chris Dove. Embarking on its third year, this point-to point, family-friendly 5K Run/Walk maintains a small-town feel, while accommodating hundreds of racers from Northern Virginia, DC, MD and beyond! Thanks to our generous sponsors, supporters, and incredible volunteers, this event has a fantastic post-race party that features awesome food, unique entertainment, and GREAT prizes. Also, a Kids' 1 Mile Fun Run will follow the 5K's Awards Ceremony. Based on last year's rave reviews, this is a race you don't want to miss!
