Make the Trip to Old Town Alexandria

Make the Trip to Old Town Alexandria

Are you planning to run Alexandria’s Hometown Race, the George Washington Parkway Classic 10 Miler, 5k and Sugar Shack Kids Dash on Sunday April 23, 2017? Great news, Pacers Running is now partnering with Alexandria hotels to create a special Parkway get away weekend package. Why not make a weekend of it? Old Town is a gem with great local business and restaurants ready to fuel your run and recovery too.

Not only can you stay in town but participating hotels offer two free “Key to the City” museum passes. These are good for admission to nine area museums and historic sites, a $98 value when you stay at a participating hotel race weekend Friday April 21- Sunday April 23, 2017.

Pop into Pacers Running on King Street on Friday or Saturday to pick up your race packet and any gear you may need to for race day. Shop America’s oldest farmer’s market, check out the waterfront, visit the Torpedo Factory Art Center, and sample artisanal beers at the newly opened Portner Brewhouse and Port City Brewery. The race guide highlights venues you will want to check out as well as information about the Old Town Boutique District. The reason Old Town is so cool is it is literally an old town; the buildings are historic and unique. There are so many fun things to check out in Old Town.

Even if you live in town it is totally worth considering staying in a hotel race weekend. Celebrate your accomplishment in training for and running the Parkway and enjoy all of the local flavor Old Town Alexandria has to offer.
