Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) are proud to announce the #FitDC Mother’s Day 5K fun run/walk will take place 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Fletcher’s Cove in Georgetown.
The event, led by weekly run group ParkRun, celebrates mothers of all ages as well as raises the importance of mothers committing to more healthy and active lifestyles by way of Mayor Bowser’s FitDC initiative. This free family-friendly run/walk will encourage individuals to connect with loved ones and new people, while receiving a workout, a free t-shirt and more.
The course is 5000m (5K) long. The course is at the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath, at 4940 Canal Road, N.W., Washington, DC 20007, which is accessible via the Capital Crescent bicycle trail. The course is run on a mixture of packed earth and gravel paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain.
VIDA Fitness is a lead sponsor providing Mother’s Day gift bags with a one-day gym pass and spa treatment coupons for 5K finishers. The Amerigroup, an additional partner, will provide light refreshments to participants.
