2014 DC Spring Races

If there’s one thing DCers love, it’s running.

On a sunny day– or a cloudy, rainy day. Runners are just about everywhere – the National Mall, Rock Creek Park, the George Washington Parkway – everywhere.

If you’re just getting into a running groove, or love to lace up your shoes every single morning at 6 a.m., there’s an upcoming DC spring race for you.

As for me, I’m looking more like the old lady who swallowed a basketball every single morning. Running might make me pee my pants at this point.

Here’s a look at DC spring races.
