There have been different iterations of this event along the way, but it has been bringing cheer to participants for 27 years straight, with this year’s edition set to be the 28th annual race.
Previously, permitting issues had caused it to be held as an 8k for a stretch. But, now, for the second year, it will be located by the Washington Monument grounds where runners will tackle a 10k course along with a 5k course.
Last year, runners raved about the new, scenic course which offers a unique opportunity to run on rarely available city streets.
A portion of proceeds from this event supports the DCXC Project, a year long initiative to get kids involved in running and running related sports, with a concentration on DC schools and programs (elementary through high school).
At four locations within DC, you can sample a tasty menu featuring burgers, hot dogs, fries, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more! We love partnering with Shake Shack for monthly fun runs as well as this event. After the race, visit Shake Shack to turn in a complimentary beverage ticket.
