The USATF-certified course for the 10K starts out in front of Peabody Primary School. Runners head west around the corner of Stanton Park to the U.S. Capitol, turning and passing in its shadow as well as past the U.S. Supreme Court and Library of Congress. After coming back behind the Library of Congress, runners head to the tree canopies along East Capitol Street, passing around Lincoln Park on their way to RFK Stadium. Once past RFK Stadium, runners head onto the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. After a circle along the trail, runners head back in along East Capitol to return to the finish at Peabody.
The USATF-certified 3K course starts out in front of Peabody Primary School, heading west around the corner of Stanton Park before turning down to East Capitol Street. Runners continue in the shade of East Capitol to Lincoln Park before turning around and heading back to Peabody for the finish.
The Fun Run is a single lap around Stanton Park (approximately a third of a mile). Parents are welcome to run with their children; all finishers will receive medals!
