An Inspiring Venue

Freedom Plaza (14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, adjacent to Pershing Park) has been the center of social and political life in Washington, DC since it opened in 1818 and is a cornerstone of America’s Main Street – Pennsylvania Avenue.  The Race for Every Child will offer gorgeous views as runners and walkers work their way toward the US Capitol Building and hit the half-way point at the southeastern edge of the National Mall. Entertainment along the course will keep you energized as you race alongside thousands of our supporters. There is no better place to celebrate Children’s National’s 140-year history than the heart of the nation’s capital.

The last day to register for the 5K is Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 11:59 EST. Due to permitting regulations, on-site registration will not be available. All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable..
