The 8K Race is known for its community spirit and USATF-certified route, starting in historic Warner Circle, past Kensington Town Hall, and along Antique Row. After a flat, straight shot down Kensington Pkwy, you enter Rock Creek Park for a beautiful run on Beach Drive. But not too fast, as the infamous East Bex"hill" awaits, followed by a downhill sprint and return through Old Town. Register Today!
Easy to register online for yourself or your entire family.
