For 25 years, the Kensington 8K Race has been a favorite DC area fall race - a fun, fast event with beauty, challenge, and excitement. Known throughout the DC Area as a true community race - parents and kids cheering on each other and welcomed visitors running through our Town and Rock Creek Park.

Strollers are welcome in all three races. We ask that you line up near the back to avoid interfering with other runners.
