ABOUT THE NAVY YARD 5k:
We are proud to present the 3rd annual Navy Yard 5k! This fun, free, and scenic 5k run will take place at The Navy Yard on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, rain or shine. The race is open only to employees of The Navy Yard. In addition to the race, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, a health & wellness expo will take place on Central Green (new location this year!), featuring tenants of The Navy Yard sharing how to educate and improve on all aspects of workplace health, wellness, nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle. This event is a great way for the community to come together, be active, and have fun! Whether you participate as a runner, volunteer, or as a spectator, we hope to see you there!
