There will be five 5Ks in Crystal City in April — on April 1, 8, 15, 22, 29. The start time for each is 6:30 p.m.
Arlington County Police officers will set up the following road closures from about 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. for the race.

The southbound lanes of Crystal Drive will remain open during the race.
“In addition to the closures, street parking in the area will be restricted,” ACPD said. “Motorists should be on the lookout for temporary ‘No Parking’ signs. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed. If your vehicle is towed from a public street, call 703-558-2222.”
