About This Activity

The Equal Justice Foundation is having our annual Race for Equal Justice on February 25, 2017 at beautiful East Potomac Park in Washington, DC, with both races beginning at 8:15 am. Come out and enjoy a spring morning along the Potomac, and support a good cause. It is also a great option for those preparing to run the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Miler! 

Don’t wait to sign up, as prices will increase after February 9th. Registration closes on the evening of February 24th. Unfortunately due to National Park Service regulations, we will not be able to offer on-site race registration. 

Event details and schedule

Free parking is available for this event along the Potomac River side of the Park, north of the race start. The nearest metro station is L'Enfant Plaza (approximately 1.2 miles away) and there are close Capital Bikeshare stations at both the Jefferson Memorial and the north intersection of Buckeye Dr SW & Ohio Dr SW.

Both races will begin and end near the corner of Ohio Drive SW and Buckeye Dr SW, south of 1100 Ohio Drive SW. The course will follow Ohio Drive SW to a 2.5k turnaround point near the Hains Point parking area. Both 5k and 10k runners will then return to the start area, with the 10k runners completing a second circuit along the same route. The Park Service will close off the course to all vehicle traffic during the entirety of the race. Click here for the race map.

Packet pick-up begins at 7:30 AM near the start area. Both races will start at 8:15 AM.

We will not be able to provide an official race bag drop area, neither can we guarantee the safety of any valuables left in your car. So please only bring essentials to the race. 

Due to Park Service restrictions ALL runners for BOTH distances must be off the course by 9:30 AM. As a result, all 10k runners who do not complete the first 5k in under 40 minutes, or the first 7.5k in 60 minutes, may be asked to step off the course at that point to ensure that the course will be clear by 9:30 AM. Please take this into consideration when deciding whether to run the 5k or 10k.

T-Shirt Sizes: If you find after pick-up that you would like to swap out the shirt size that you ordered for a different size, please wait to make that swap until after the race is complete to guarantee that everyone initially gets the size they ordered.

Race day details may be subject to slight changes as the race date nears.
