This Sunday is the Army 10-Miler, starting at 8 AM at the Pentagon. The race is the largest 10-mile run in the country, with over 30,000 registered participants. The Metro is opening early on Sunday to get all those runners to the Pentagon, and there will be a whole lot of street closures on Sunday morning as well.
The race expo will be held at the DC Armory on Friday and Saturday this weekend. This isn’t just your typical pre-race expo with displays and sales on athletic gear, this expo is actually doing some good. Bring your new or slightly worn running shoes to the expo this weekend to help out Soles4Souls, a charity that distributes shoes to disadvantaged people worldwide.
Sunday should be beautiful weather for the race, so even if you’re not registered, plan on heading out to watch the mass of 30,000 people take over the streets around DC and Arlington. See you out there!
