Where is it?

The event takes place at Rock Creek Trail, Beach Dr and Cedar Ln, Bethesda, MD 20814. 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. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time

How fast do I have to be?

We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Kensington parkrun needs you!
