Dash through history during the area's most unique 10K/5K! This USATF-certified course takes runners up and down the scenic George Washington Memorial Parkway and traces Washington's footsteps through the historic grounds at Mount Vernon. Cross the finish line with the Mansion in view and receive a t-shirt and medal.
Children can join the fun and receive a medal during the free Kids Fun Run (registration required).
Both the 5K and 10K start at 8AM. The Kids Fun Run starts at 9:45AM.
Take a finisher photo with General Washington and enjoy concessions, music, and beer. There will be an awards ceremony for the races' top finishers, including cannons firing on the 12-Acre Field.
All spectators looking to access the finish festival area on the grounds of Mount Vernon will be required to purchase an admission ticket. Discounted admission tickets are available for purchase until 5PM on Saturday, September 8. General admission tickets at full price are available at the Ford Orientation Center ticket window on race day.
