Race Information

Enjoy the U.S. National Arboretum in full swing during Friend of the National Arboretum's (FONA) Summer 5K. This race will take you past garden collections in full bloom, over tree-lined rolling hills, and along streams winding their way to the Anacostia River. This race is not only scenic, but also safe and secure. All roads are closed to cars during this race so you can safely enjoy running through this 450-acre urban green space. Strollers and dogs are welcome, but dogs must stay on a 5' non-retractable leash.
