Upcoming April Fun Runs and 5K Runs in DC

Upcoming 5K Runs and Fun Runs in April

There are so many different ways to work out, exercise, and make healthy choices in DC near Chevy Chase. Organized runs are a great way to participate in a community event in the city while keeping up on those New Year’s resolutions we suggested a few months back.

The good thing about signing up for an organized run is that it forces you to train and prepare for the big run date. This can be a big boost for your normal training and can help you get in more consistent training. Best of all, organized runs are fun! Here’s a list of some of the upcoming runs in DC for the month of April. Most of these serve to benefit various charities and causes. Get out there and have fun!

Caterpillar Crawl

April 2
Join the 4th annual 5k Caterpillar Crawl. Benefits go to Camp Kesem GW, which provides a free one-week summer camp program and year-round support for children of cancer patients. The run starts at George Washington University (Kogan Plaza) at 10 am.

Foam Glow

April 9
The Foam Glow 5K fun runs are taking the nation by storm. The event arrives in DC on April 9 and the race starts at night at 8:15 pm. Runners pass through different “Glow Zones” where the participants run through different colored non-toxic foam. The foam glows in the dark due many high intensity black lights placed throughout the course.This makes for an exciting, one-of-a-kind run experience for all ages.

Proceeds go to help childhood cancer awareness through organizations like Children’s Miracle Network and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

2nd Annual Spring Strip 5K & Clothing Drive

April 23
Here’s another interesting one: The 2nd Annual Spring Strip clothing drive requires runners to pass through “Strip Stations”. These are checkpoints where the participant donates an article of clothing to American veterans. The donations go to the Purple Heart Foundation, where they will be distributed to Wounded Warriors. Participants are encouraged to layer up! The run begins at the Alexandria Aqueduct in Georgetown.
