For the cost of your registration, you'll run on a USATF-certified course, and you'll receive your bib, your timing chip, a technical race T-shirt, and plenty of snacks and water at the finish line. There is a free bike valet at the start and finish line, and the amazing women of Batala Washington will drum you through the middle of the 10K course.
The Capitol Hill Classic 10K race is a major annual fundraiser for the Capitol Hill Cluster School, a DC public school with over 1,100 students. This will be the 41st annual running of the Classic, which includes a 10K race , a 3K race and a kids’ fun run and is the only race run exclusively on the roads of Capitol Hill. Approximately 4,500 people are expected to participate in the Classic.
The course for the 10K starts out in front of Peabody Primary School a few blocks from the US Capitol. Runners head west around the corner of Stanton Park and then straight to the Capitol. The course continues between the Capitol, the Supreme Court, and the Library of Congress before turning east and then heading up to the tree-lined canopies along East Capitol Street. Runners continue along East Capitol around Lincoln Park to RFK Stadium, and then onto the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. After a circle along the trail, runners head back in along East Capitol to return to the finish at Peabody.
The 3K course starts out in front of Peabody Primary School, heading west around the corner of Stanton Park before turning down to East Capitol Street. Runners continue in the shade of East Capitol to Lincoln Park before turning around and heading back to Peabody for the finish.
The Fun Run is a single lap around Stanton Park (approximately a third of a mile).
