With dangerous, scorching heat prompting warnings from forecasters and local officials, organizers of outdoor events are reconsidering their plans this weekend.
Among them: the popular, annual Crystal City Twilighter 5K race.
The race, which was scheduled for Saturday evening, has been cancelled, the Crystal City Business Improvement District said this afternoon.
“The Arlington County Fire Department & Pacers have deemed the weather conditions unsafe and the event will not be rescheduled,” the BID said via social media. “If you are registered already you will be contacted by Pacers directly and you can still pick up your packets with your shirt at the Pacers store today and tomorrow.”
