Thank you for entering Roosevelt Run 5K, Thursday, September 1, at the north end of Mount Vernon Trail, at the Rosslyn - Arlington VA end of Key Bridge, on the east (DC) side.
If the park had an address, it would be 1301 Lee Highway, and that address shows correctly in some GPS systems.
Parking after 6:00 PM is free in most of Rosslyn. Make sure your meter doesn't say "10:00 PM."
Packet pickup is open from 6:00 PM to 6:45 PM on-site. We'll have your bib number, safety pins, t-shirt, and a printed certificate for each entrant congratulating you by name.
The race starts and finishes at the Rosslyn end of Mount Vernon Trail. Look for a small green sign that says
between the I-66 exit ramp that forms the beginning of Lee Highway westbound and the Rosslyn end of Key Bridge.
Our race is small, but we want you to have a nice souvenir -- a bright green cinch bag from ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Institute
We are grateful ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Institute for providing awards for the top 3 male and female finishers and the first over-40 male and female finishers. We will also have amusing age group awards.
We score the race the old-fashioned way, collecting the tear-off tag at the bottom of your bib number. So please wear your bib number visibly on the front of your shirt, not obscured in any way, and please leave the tag intact at the bottom of your bib number until we collect it after you finish.
Using our low-tech manual timing system, we announce awards immediately after you finish.
The course is out'n'back on the Mount Vernon Trail, down the ramp over George Washington Memorial Parkway, past Theodore Roosevelt Island, over the boardwalk, under Memorial Bridge, and almost to the Navy-Marine Memorial with the seagulls, north of 14th Street Bridge. Much of the trail is in sight of West Potomac Park, the site of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and Martin Luther King Memorial.
We publish results as soon as possible at www.safetyandhealthfoundation.org/20160901.html
We thank you for choosing our race, and we look forward to welcoming you!
