34th Capitol Hill Classic: Sunday, May 19th, 2013
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 year brought the 34th annual running of the Classic, which included a 3K race and a kids’ fun run and is the only race run exclusively on the roads of Capitol Hill.

Camp Phoenix Shadow Run
This year, soldiers in Kabul, Afghanistan ran the first-ever Capitol Hill Classic shadow run! The US Army coordinator for the run estimated that he’d have up to 150 runners interested in participating, so we were excited to hear that over 200 runners (and an explosive-seeking dog!) toed the line to make the shadow run a huge success. It was an opportunity for soldiers 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 have been asked to support it.
The Capitol Hill Classic couldn’t happen without the generous support of our sponsors; we urge you to support them as much as they support the Capitol Hill Cluster School!
