Race Website:
A Kensington tradition since 1994, the 20th Annual Kensington 8K Race, 2 Mile Challenge and 1K Fun Run has something for everyone. The 8K is a challenging race combining both hills and flats through Old Town Kensington and Rock Creek Park. Its a great training run for the experienced runner, a touchstone event for the intermediate runner, and a milestone for the beginning runner. The 2 mile challenge and 1K fun run are events that both adult and younger runners really enjoy, giving everyone in the family a fall race to run in Kensington. Race proceeds support academic and extracurricular programs at Kensington Parkwood Elementary, North Bethesda Middle, and Walter Johnson High Schools.
