Parkway Classic 40th Anniversary Run on Sunday

Alexandria’s centric race destination the PNC Parkway Classic, produced by Pacers Running, celebrates its 40th-year and returns Sunday, April 28, 2024. The race, sponsored by PNC Bank, attracts thousands of runners and spectators throughout the DC Metro region and beyond to experience the historic George Washington Memorial Parkway from a different vantage point during the Springtime.

The race takes place during National Park Week, observed from Saturday, April 20 through Sunday, April 28, 2024.

The signature adult race, beginning at 8 a.m., will feature two distance options for runners — 10 Mile or 5K. The 10-mile course will start at the Mount Vernon Estate and will take runners down the tree-lined George Washington Memorial Parkway and through Old Town Alexandria. Featuring a pre-race with family-friendly activities, a Kids Dash 600-meter race will take place for kids under 12 years old.

Runners over 21 years will receive a complimentary beverage from local brewery Port City Brewery. Participants will also get a T-shirt and commemorative race medal. The Joe Chiocca Band will play at the finish festival, Port City Brewery pop-up, and other special activities to celebrate the runners. Jillian Hogan Homes returns as an Official Sponsor of the event and will host the PNC Parkway Classic VIP Experience.

Since its inception, the Parkway Classic has raised close to one million dollars for local and regional charities and organizations, such as Boys + Girls Club of Alexandria. For registration information, race route details and event day activities, visit:
