35th 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.
Registration Now Open!
Registration for the 35th annual Capitol Hill Classic has begun! Come join in on the 10K, the 3K, or the kids’ fun run, and support the Capitol Hill Cluster School.
Moms in Training
We’re extremely excited to announce our partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as the target race for the inaugural DC Moms in Training program!
2014 will bring a change to the 10K course that will considerably shorten the path that we had to take through the RFK Stadium parking lot in 2013; we’ll still be running on the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, though! Check out the course maps page page for more information.
DCRR 10K Training
The DC Road Runners have a 10K training program targeting the Capitol Hill Classic, and they welcome beginners and advanced runners alike! The program meets on Saturdays at the Athleta store in Georgetown, and includes independent runs during the week supported by email training advice. The program begins on March 8th — so go sign up now!
Camp Phoenix Shadow Run
It looks like we’ll be able to bring 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.
