| $40

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the burning of Washington, Historic Congressional Cemetery is hosting the Flee the British 5k on August 24th, 2014 at 8 am. Chase Dolley as she rescues the famed portrait of George Washington from the flames, and feel what it’s like to have the British on your heels as you scurry to the finish line. Bring the family and join us for a 2k Kids Run that begins directly after the 5k race (around 8:05 am). You won’t want to miss this historic 5k amongst the graves of many of the key players in the War of 1812. 5k registration is $40 and includes a t-shirt, and the untimed kids fun run is $10. For more details please see: http://www.congressionalcemetery.org/flee-british-5k
