Clarendon Day 10K/5K
What better way to celebrate Clarendon than a run down our most storied boulevard? Join us for the fifth annual Clarendon Day 10K/5K & Kids Dash, the official kick off to the popular Clarendon Day Festival presented by the Clarendon Alliance.Easily one of the area’s fastest courses, this course takes runners along a foot tour of the eclectic neighborhoods along the orange line.Top off the race with a post-race party at Clarendon’s hometown watering hole, Whitlow’s on Wilson, and other great restaurants, pubs, and vendors.
Fastest Downhill in Metro DC! This fast course starts in the heart of Clarendon, goes out towards Memorial Bridge onto Route 110, and then returns to finish in Rosslyn.
The start for both the 10K and 5K is located directly in front of Whitlow’s on Wilson Bar & Grill (2854 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22201). The finish for both the 10K & 5K is located at North Kent Street at Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn. The start/finish for the kid’s dash is located at the Market Common Shopping Center across from the Apple Store (2700 Clarendon Boulevard, Arlington, VA, 22201).
Each year, we have more and more crazy (in a good way!) runners who run both the 10K & 5K events.
This year we hope more of you attempt to run both races, and to help you with this, we have added more time between the race starts (5K at 8AM and 10K at 9AM). Keep in mind, though, that you have to get back up the hill to the 10K start and metro is spotty, so plan accordingly. You will receive ONE metro card near the finish line, if you are running the double, your best bet is to walk back up the hill and save the metro card for when you finish the 10K.
