Runners, and probably some dogs, will descend on Stanton Park for the Capitol Hill Classic Sunday.

Showers and maybe a few thunderstorms are expected to come through the area Saturday, with the temperature rising to the lower 70s, according to the National Weather Service. But rain finally should clear the area by the start of the race, bringing sunny skies and a high of about 60.

Here’s what else you might want to know for this weekend:

  • Sapore on Capitol Hill now is selling “bipartisan barbecue sauce.”
  • The Folger Shakespeare Library on Sunday is hosting a free forum on race and religion.
  • The Hill Center’s “Seeing Red Film Series” is continuing Sunday with a screening of “Crossfire,” a 1947 film that caught the attention of the House Un-American Activities Committee.
