On Saturday, September 2nd beginning at 8 am, over 1,500 race participants are expected to participate in this year’s 5K Run, Walk & Kid’s Fun Runs through the Kentlands and Lakelands neighborhoods. Runners, walkers and kids from all over the Greater D.C. Metropolitan area, the mid-Atlantic region, and beyond will come to experience our unique New Urbanist community during the Race. The Race benefits the Kentlands Community Foundation, The Dolores C. Swoyer Summer Camp Scholarship Fund, The Dwelling Place, and The Maryland Senior Olympics. The Race also serves as a qualifying event for the Maryland Senior Olympics!

The Races start and end on Main Street & Market Street East/West, between Market Street Plaza and the Courts of Devon, and finish on Main Street at Market Street East. The well-renowned 5K Merchant Expo Festival and Awards Ceremony will take place immediately following the Race on Market Square and the surrounding streets. To ensure the safety of all race participants, race streets will be closed to parking before and during the race, and car traffic will be restricted until 12 p.m. on September 2. Cars left on the course after 1 a.m. on Race Day will be towed at the owner’s expense. Please plan accordingly.
