Thank you for entering Monster Mask 5K on Sunday, October 13, starting at 9 AM at Fletcher's Cove, 4940 Canal Road, Washington DC.


Due to the Federal government shutdown, a 2-inch-wide 8-feet-long steel chain anchored with four hex-bolts obstructs the parking area at Fletcher's Cove. Please park off-site on Reservoir Road, Bending Lane, Hutchins Lane. V Street, or MacAerthur Boulevard and walk down Reservoir Road, cross over Canal Road looking both ways, and enter Fletcher's Cove on foot.


Please dress appropriately for cold, wet, monstrous weather.
