Photographers: want to show off your skills and get a chance to win gift cards to local restaurants?

If so, head down to the 5K race on Crystal Drive in Crystal City tonight and get a few photos of anything race-related. Upload the photos to our contest Flickr group and get a chance to win some tasty prizes.

If you brought your camera to last week’s race and haven’t uploaded your photos yet, feel free to upload them now.

With any luck the rain will have passed by the time the race starts. The contest is sponsored by ARLnow.com, Foto DC, Crystal City BID and Pacers.

    “Hopefully the rain passes” – uhh, not so much. Time to photograph some wet t-shirts and win this contest 🙂

      I was already thinking that! And then you posted it! Awesome!!

    Yeah, rain should still be around at race time…can’t wait to slog a wet 3 miles!


    The turn out was still great in spite of the rain. In reference to the photo contest, it should be stated that the deadline has been extended. I took photos last week, but did not add them because of the 5 photos limit. I wanted to add the best from both weeks. Now that we have two additional weeks, I believe that the limit should be raised.

    Photo caption: Move over mom. Now catch me if you can.

    • We extended the deadline to make sure that folks who didn’t want to take their camera out into the rain would have a chance to enter the contest. However, the number of entries will remain at five. If you decide that you want to enter photos taken at a subsequent race, you are welcome to remove older photos from the group to make way for the new entries.
