Dash4Dad Race This Weekend in Pentagon City

Father’s Day is coming up this weekend — have you already planned something special for dad?

If not, here’s an idea: The fourth annual Dash4Dad Four Mile Run and Walk is being held Sunday morning in Pentagon City, complete with entries for daddy-daughter and father-son teams.

The four mile race and one mile walk starts and finishes on S. Joyce Street, in front of the Pentagon Row shops. Proceeds will go to support prostate cancer awareness, outreach and research.

As part of the Father’s Day theme, runners are encouraged to put on a necktie at the one mile mark to “tie one on for dad.” Awards will be given to the fastest knot-tyers. Later, a post-race party will be held at the Champps sports bar in Pentagon Row.

    Oh no … how will I get out of my garage to drive to Georgetown?

      Sounds like me on Sunday when the Cycle Classic blocked me in for the day.

    Interesting. I didn’t know this race had moved to Pentagon City. It was in Alexandria last year, I think. I might have signed up this time but I’m racing in the Washington DC Triathlon that same morning, right across the river.

    I hope they continue to add more races in Pentagon City. Shorter running races don’t block off the streets for too long, and traffic is pretty light on Sunday mornings. The Valentine’s Day race moved to Pentagon Row recently. There’s also the much larger Army Ten-Miler at the Pentagon.

    Good luck to everyone running. Let’s see an Arlingtonian win it!

    Testicle Festival last weekend, prostate event this weekend. Is this a theme?

    I won’t be able to attend the Dash, but I am genuinely happy to see Prostate Cancer getting some attention, as Breast Cancer seems to usually get all of the spotlight. (Both are worthy causes, of course, just a personal observation that prostate cancer seems neglected to me).
