A number of streets in the Virginia Square and Clarendon areas will be closed Sunday morning for the Acumen Solutions Run for the Cause 8K race.

The race, organized by Potomac River Running, raises money for a number of good causes. Last year, sponsors say the race raised $125,000 for ten non-profits.

The starting gun is scheduled to sound at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday. Arlington County Police will be closing the following streets during the race:

  • North Quincy Street from Glebe Road to Wilson Boulevard will be closed from 5:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
  • Wilson Boulevard Eastbound from Quincy Street to North 10th Street will be closed from 7:45 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
  • North 10th Street Eastbound to Washington Boulevard will be closed from 7:45 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
  • Washington Boulevard Southbound from North 10th Street to Rt. 244 will be closed from 7:45 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Street parking restrictions will also be in place. Vehicles parked in temporary no parking zones will be ticketed and towed.’

  • If you are local and interested in running/walking, it’s not too late. It should be a great fall day!

    If you can’t make up your mind which charity to run/walk for, please consider the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia (LCNV) which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. bit.ly/KmQjR8

    But all ten of the organizations selected as beneficiaries are extremely deserving.

    I seriously hope Washington Blvd. isn’t going to be close for over 2 hours between 10th and Columbia Pike. Too many major roads being closed.
