Thank you for entering Abebe Bikila Day International Peace Marathon & Half. We look forward to hosting you on Saturday, September 13.

We now offer you a new transportation option. Our friend Bernard Anderson (bernardanderson100@yahoo.com, 202-352-0839 for more information) drives a nice clean 2008 Range Rover.

He offers to transport participants to our Abebe Bikila Day event departing at 6:30 AM on Saturday, September 13, from Stadium-Armory Metro Station.

Price: $10 one-way (regularly $20, but we'll cover half the tab). $20 round-trip (departing Fletcher's Cove at 12 noon)

To sign up, please click http://www.active.com/framed/event_detail.cfm?event_id=2120532

Then select Range Rover Ride (the first option).

Participants and family/friends can sign up. The Range Rover can seat 4 adult passengers and up to 4 additional lap children. If more than 4 adults sign up, we can rent an additional vehicle, a brand-new Denali SUV for 4 more adults + children. If more than 8 adults sign up, we can rent a 12-passenger van. Both drivers are professionals.

For those who select Round-Trip, the driver(s) will depart from Fletcher's Cove at 12 noon and can drop you off anywhere on the route back to Stadium-Armory Metro Station.

Please reserve your rides by Sunday, September 7, at 6:00 PM, so we know how many vehicles to rent.
