Hello Runners! Please join us on our Saturday runs around Capitol Hill. We have four scenic routes that include the Arboretum, Navy Yard Riverwalk, Anacostia River Trails and the Tidal Basin. 

We meet at 9am in the wintertime, next to Lincoln's status in the middle of the park. There's usually a range of paces from 8-10+ min/mile, and we always make sure no runner is left behind (we haven't lost anyone yet :) 

Here are the routes that we do. The run leaders will review the week's route before the run, but please take a look at the route map if you have a chance beforehand. 

Happy running! ~ the Lincoln Park Run Leaders

    Kind of last minute, but I was wondering where we are running tomorrow? My friend and I were thinking about extending the run to 10 miles, but the Arboretum route might be less conducive to that.

      I just hope I'm able to find the group and not get lost. Coming up from Waldorf, MD. And not sure about parking so may metro in.

      Sara - we're running the Anacostia Trail Southern Loop. One way for you to extend it to something closer to 10 miles would be to combine it with one of our Wednesday night routes. Mac - we leave from the Lincoln statue a few minutes after 9:00, I hope you can make it in.
