35th NCB Capitol Hill Classic: Sunday, May 18th, 2014
The Capitol Hill Classic 10K race is a major annual fundraiser for the Capitol Hill Cluster School, a DC public school with over 1,000 students. This will be the 35th annual running of the Classic, including a 10K, a 3K, and a kids’ fun run, and is the only race run exclusively on the roads of Capitol Hill. National Capital Bank returns as our title sponsor in 2014, demonstrating a continuing commitment to the Capitol Hill community.
Results Now Online
Results for the 2014 NCB Capitol Hill Classic are now online! Head over to our results page for full 10K and 3K results; the searchable database is up now, and the static files will be added soon.
2014 brought a change to the 10K course that considerably shortened the path that we took through the RFK Stadium parking lot; we still ran on the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, though! Check out the course maps page page for more information.
Take Uber to the Classic!
We’re partnering with Uber to offer new riders a free ride to the starting line! Just use the promotion code CHClassic when signing up for Uber (or click this link to get started), and Uber will give you $30 off your first ride. And $5 of each ride comes back to the Cluster School!
Yoga in Stanton Park
This year, Capitol Hill fitness enthusiast Gabriella Boston will be offering a repeating ten-minute loop of yoga in Stanton Park during and after the 10K race, perfect for participants to jump into at any point! She’ll be on hand and will provide yoga mats, so once you’ve crossed the finish line and picked up any food and drink you need, finish off your recovery with ten minutes of yoga with Gabriella. See here for all the info.
Camp Phoenix Shadow Run
We’re bringing the Capitol Hill Classic back to Kabul, Afghanistan in 2014! Thanks to the support of USAA, soldiers stationed at Camp Phoenix will have the opportunity to get out of their uniforms and into racing clothes to participate in an event which links them back to their homes, and we’re honored to be able to work with the US Army to support it. In 2013, over 200 participants (and a bomb-sniffing dog!) took part in the inaugural Classic Shadow Run; we can’t wait to see what 2014 brings.
