Thanksgiving Day 5k Charity Run/Walk

  • November 22, 2012 · 9:00 AM

For those who are in town for Thanksgivig day and before you spoil yourself with foodies, why not do a 5k run/walk first thing on Thanksgiving day? 

So Others May Eat is a DC organization that has been assisting the homeless individuals and families in the DC area.  They're having their 11th Annual Thanksgiving 5k Charity Run/Walk.  The registration is $30. 

You can sign up here:

The run/walk will be held at Freedom Plaza in downtown Washington, DC (Pennsylvania Ave NW, b/w 13th and 12Street NW)

After the run/walk, we can hit a restaurant nearby for a meal.  Please note in your RSVP once you are registered.  I will send my contact info and where to meet to registered attendees by email.

See you at the run/walk!

    Hey everyone. I just spoke with Marinel. I have suggested that we all hang out/meet near the starbucks at the corner of 13th NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. (1301 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, 20004). I am about 6'2" so I may be a little easier to find with all the commotion. We are suggesting people meetup over here after picking up their packets. I can be reached at[masked]-9069. I plan to be in the area at 8am as well.

    Hi, all. They suggest we be at the area for picking up packets at 8 am. I will aim to get there at that time. I can post on the meetup comment where I am exactly if I can find a landmark somewhere there. But my cell is[masked] so feel free to text me to find the group. If we miss each other, after the race, let's all meet at Clyde's restaurant in Chinatown - the address is 707 7th street nw (by the cinema). I'm walking/running and probably will get done in an hour or so (hurt my knee over the weekend). ETA at Clyde's would be around 10:45-11 am. They open at 11 am anyway and they have a Thanksgiving menu. Let's meet there and decide whether to eat there or another place around Chinatown (La Tasca is open as well). See you all!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
