Thank you for entering Roosevelt Run 5K, Thursday, August 31
The start line is at the north trailhead of Mount Vernon Trail, at the Rosslyn - Arlington VA end of Key Bridge, on the east (DC) side
Look for a small green sign that says
If the park had an address, it would be 1201 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 6:30 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 course is out'n'back on Mount Vernon Trail, down the ramp over George Washington Memorial Parkway, past Theodore Roosevelt Island, over the boardwalk, alongside Potomac River, 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
Our race is small, but we want you to have a nice souvenir -- a bright green cinch bag from
