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
