2016 Pacers Running DCXC Invite presented by New Balance

Saturday, September 24th

Kenilworth Park


          Registration coming soon!

Watch as runners become superheroes! 

Last Year’s Race

2015’s event was a fantastic success! Thanks to New Balance as well as all the race staff and volunteers and especially the coaches and participants.

Kenilworth 5k Course

Kenilworth Park located in the NE section of the Nation’s Capitol is across the Anacostia river from the National Arboretum and located adjacent to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens; two spectacular natural treasures tucked away from the tourist haven of downtown, DC.

The course itself will be a fast European style loop course; very slight up and down hills will make for a very quick opening mile;  however, there are enough turns and dips to challenge runners and create the need for a strategy.   This is no golf course.
