After the race, all runners and families are invited to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo for a special post-race event–plus Enrichment Day, a full day of toys, climbing structures, puzzle feeders, and more for the Zoo’s animals.

This USATF certified 5K course winds and rolls through the new urbanist communities of Kentlands and Lakelands of Gaithersburg, giving participants the chance to experience the unique design of these award-winning neighborhoods.
