Join GW Law School’s Equal Justice Foundation for our annual 5k/10k Race for Justice on March 21, 2020 at scenic Rock Creek Park in Washington DC! Both races begin at 7:30 am. Come and enjoy a beautiful spring morning along the Potomac and support a good cause. The race is also a great training opportunity for those preparing to run the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile or the Potomac River Run Marathon! After the race, enjoy complimentary snacks to refuel!

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 at Brightwood Recreation Area/Rock Creek Picnic Area 24 in Rock Creek Park. The race will begin and end at this location. Several bus lines run very close to this location and we encourage those looking to use public transportation to use an online trip planner to plan their most convenient route. 

The race course will follow Morrow Dr. NW to Beach Dr. and turn around at Picnic Grove #4. 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.

Packet pick-up begins at 6:45 AM near the start area. Both races will start at 7:30 AM.

We will not be able to provide an official race bag drop area, nor 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 50 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 gets the size they ordered.

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