George Washington is the quintessential champion. So of course we would invite him to our race that bears his name!
Runners who cross the finish line will be greeted by the Washington Nationals popular Racing President. Be ready to grab your medal and high five George and celebrate at the Finish Festival at Oronoco Bay Park!
And don’t leave the festival without a complimentary race memento provided by AR Workshop Alexandria.
