    • Whether or not you run the race, come cheer on your classmates and friends as they race to the finish line! 
    • EVERYONE is invited to stick around after the race for Food Trucks, a Moon Bounce, and more! on Drew Field.

Parking at the race site is limited, so please consider biking / walking / carpooling to Drew.  
Limited parking is available at the following:
* Drew School car lot - Please DO NOT park in the bus lanes at Drew - we will need to use that area to park our food truck and for our vendors to get their equipment in/out.  Since S. Kenmore St will be closed off for the duration of the race, if you plan to drive, please arrive by 8:45am in order to access the Drew parking lot.  
* Macedonia Baptist Church parking lot (3412 22nd St S, Arlington, VA) - Please access the lot from the entrance off Shirlington Rd.   

Race Start Time
IMPORTANT: The Race will begin PROMPTLY at 9:00am.  If you arrive after 9am, a parent/guardian may need to run with you as we cannot guarantee race course volunteers.  Additionally, NO runners will be allowed to start the race after 9:15am, as we cannot maintain road closure beyond that time.  Please plan to arrive no later than 8:45am!  Also, top finishers are determined by order across the finish line, so just another reason to arrive before 9am!

Race Route
The race will begin at the walkway just in front of the school building, and proceed south along S Kenmore in a clockwise fashion around the neighborhood (S Kenmore -> S Shirlington -> 25th St S -> S Lincoln -> S Lowell -> S Monroe -> 22nd St S -> S Kenmore), and end back at the starting line.   Runners will run on sidewalks for the entire race, with the exception of S. Kenmore (from 22nd St S to S Shirlington Rd), which will be closed off during the race.

Volunteers Needed!
To make this event a success, we need volunteers!  Please consider signing up for a slot here:

Sponsor: Shout out to Chandler's Plumbing and Heating for sponsoring the prizes for our Dragon Dash!
