The Parkway Classic is Alexandria’s hometown race, and so much more, with the Parkway route connecting two of the area’s most historic spots. The starting gun (sadly, there is no musket) fires steps from the picturesque George Washington’s Mount Vernon. From there, participants travel down the tree-lined George Washington Memorial Parkway to another area associated with Washington, charming Old Town Alexandria. In addition to the 10-mile distance, a 5K and kid’s dash are available. The Parkway Classic supports the Boys and Girls Club of Alexandria and has been voted a favorite spring race by RunWashington Magazine. Join Pacers Running for the 35th Annual Parkway Classic.
