Fletcher’s Cove parkrun

What is Fletcher’s Cove parkrun?

A free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate – it's up to you!

When is it?

Every Saturday at 9:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath, at 4940 Canal Road, N.W., Washington, DC 20007, which is accessible via the Capital Crescent bicycle trail. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once and don't forget to bring a scannable copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time.
