Get your running shoes on! Plans have just been announced for the first Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon on September 19.
Sponsored by Burke and Herbert Bank and their six charity partners, this first time event will see runners take off from Mt. Vernon, move up the George Washington Parkway, cross the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and finish at the Awakening sculpture at National Harbor.
The race will be limited to 4,000 starts and all entrants must be able to average 15 minutes per mile.
Not quite ready you say? Training groups for this half marathon are under way and it’s not to late to sign up.
The 13.1 mile course has been certified by the USA Track and Field Association and local anchor woman Dorren Gentzler will be the official race ambassador.
Time to get ready – it’s the first Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon!
