WHEN IS IT?...Saturday, October 14th. The race begins at 8am, but we need volunteers throughout the morning with slots from 6am-10:30am.
WHERE IS IT?...Anacostia Park, 1500 Anacostia Drive SE (The Skating Rink Pavilion)
WHY A 5K?...Our 5K fun run and walk is a great opportunity to bring community members, volunteers, and families together to support a great cause! Funds from the 5K support Playtime Project's year-round youth play programming for children experiencing homelessness in DC.
CAN I VOLUNTEER AND STILL RUN THE RACE?...Yes! There are volunteer slots that will enable you to run the race (and we'll waive your registration fee).
CAN I BRING MY CHILD OR OTHER VOLUNTEER UNDER THE AGE OF 18?...Yes, an adult age 18 and older may bring a child to volunteer alongside them. Please note in the comments below; depending on the age of your children we may assign you a different role.
**When signing up for volunteer slots, please note that the road into the park will be closed from 7:45am-9:30am (so that the race route is clear): you will not be able to travel in or out of the park by car during that time. The Anacostia Metro station is a 20 minute walk away from the start/end of the race route.**
