5K (In-Person Race) Details and Updates:

Hello BEST Kids Superheroes!

We are so excited to be with you in person for our 10 th Annual Superhero 5K and Fun Run this Saturday, October 15th at Hains Point, DC. We wanted to provide you with some information in preparation for the race. Check-in will be from 7:45AM – 8:45AM. The adult and youth (ages 12 and under) 5K race will begin promptly at 9:00AM. The Fun Run will start at 8:30AM or when all 5K runners have crossed the finish line, whichever comes first. This is a rain or shine event, therefore the event will still take place even if it rains. Lastly, we encourage you to dress up like your favorite superhero. It is not mandatory, but we would love for you to join in the fun.

COVID-19 Safety and Protocol
Our goal is to keep all participants, volunteers, and staff members involved with the event safe and healthy while complying with the federal and local guidelines and requirements. If you have any COVID symptoms, please be respectful of everyone and stay home.

If you are using a GPS, enter East Potomac Golf Course as the destination. Park anywhere along Ohio Drive or at the back parking lot to the left at the golf course. There will be signs and BEST Kids personnel who will guide you.

Again, we are so excited to see all of you. Thank you for your support and cooperation in advance. We expect this to be a fun-filled and safe event all in support of our youth in foster care.

If you’d like to share any photos of your participation please email to them to or you can tag us on social media @bestkidsdc.
