The race course is USATF-certified (DC004002JS), relatively flat & scenic. It is an out & back course that starts at 3000 K Street, NW, proceeds to the Whitehurst Freeway & out Canal Road to Reservoir Road & back to the Washington Harbour. Water is available at the harbour before & after the race, on the course at four points, and at the finish line. Ice cold sponges for cooling down will also be available. Bikes, skaters, strollers, headsets & pets are prohibited on the 10K race course.
The Fun Walk is approximately 3K or 1.6 miles. Walkers start at the same location the race does, immediately following the runners. The walk will follow the Rock Creek Park Trail along the Potomac River to the Lincoln Memorial, and return to the Washington Harbour. Baby joggers and strollers are welcome. Pets are not allowed on the walk course but are welcomed at the post-race party at the Harbour. There will be one water stop on the walk route.

ChronoTrack Timing and Scoring
Transponder timing operated by Pacers Events will be used to score the 10K race. The system uses a computer tag which is incorporated into the runner's bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and the finish line, resulting in a net time for each runner. The B-tag is disposable. Overall awards will be based upon clock time and age group awards will be based upon transponder times.
Are You a CVD Survivor?
We want to recognize all cardiovascular disease and stroke survivors who participate in our event. Please let us know you are a survivor when you register or arrive to volunteer and you will be directed to the Tribute Area where you can share your story and/or pick up a survivor cap.
