Race History

In 2009, Pacers Running partnered with Arlington County and the Clarendon Alliance to organize the Clarendon Day Run making it the official race of the Festival. After hosting over 2300 participants its first year, the race has gained a devoted crowd of runners with increased participation each year thereafter.

While the fast and fun course has remained the same since the beginning, in 2013 the choice to run the “Double” was added and it quickly became a popular option.

The  Saturday Clarendon Day Street Festival has occurred for 30 years and has grown to attract well over 30,000 visitors annually to the neighborhood. Food, music, art, and displays from local businesses add fun and character to the community celebration.

Whitlow’s on Wilson has served as the post-race party headquarters since inception with other local establishments stepping in to be added stops on the celebration tour.
