Runners to Dash Across Town in Capitol Hill Classic Next Weekend
(Updated at 7:24 a.m. Thursday) Thousands of runners are expected to race down the streets around Stanton Park next weekend for the Capitol Hill Classic.
The annual 10K, 3K and fun run benefitting the Capitol Hill Cluster School will kick off on Sunday, May 15 at 8:30 a.m., according to the event’s website.
The race courses this year will be similar to last year’s courses, with the 10K starting at Peabody Elementary School, passing the U.S. Capitol and then heading east on East Capitol Street to the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. It will then loop back to finish at Peabody. The 3K will start at Peabody, do a loop near Stanton Park and return to the school. And during the fun run, kids will race once around Stanton Park.
Prospective runners will be able to register for the race at a five percent discount until May 13. Additionally, the school still needs a few extra hands to pass out packets and set up. Click here to sign up to volunteer.
