Runners Rejoice! Registration Is Open for the PNC Parkway Classic Road Race April 26

Registration is open for the annual PNC Parkway Classic, hosted by Pacers Running.

The event, which draws thousands of runners from around the country, takes place Sunday, April 26 with an 8 a.m. start time.

An immediate favorite since it began in 1984, the PNC Parkway Classic is a rare opportunity for runners of all abilities to realize a dream come true: To run on the wide open pavement of the George Washington Memorial Parkway — no cars! — for 10 miles, 5K, or a family-sized Kids Dash (with a 10:30 a.m. start time).

The 10-mile course begins at historic Mount Vernon Estate; the 5K starts at Oronoco Bay; the Kids Dash kicks off at King Street in Old Town Alexandria. Along the way there are views of the fresh spring bloom aligning both sides of the highway and scenic vistas of the Potomac River which runs parallel to much of the course.

The 10 mile point to point race starts at Mt Vernon Estates and finishes at Oronoco Bay Park in Old Town (free shuttles available from D.C., Arlington and Alexandria). Enjoy the finish line party with Port City Brewing.
