2019 Pacers Running DCXC Invite presented by New Balance


Saturday 9/28/19 | Kenilworth Park


Kenilworth 5K Course

Kenilworth Park located in the NE section of the Nation’s Capitol is across the Anacostia river from the National Arboretum and located adjacent to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens; two spectacular natural treasures tucked away from the tourist haven of downtown, DC.

The course itself will be a fast European style 5k loop course; very slight up and down hills will make for a very quick opening mile; however, there are enough turns and dips to challenge runners and create the need for a strategy. This is no golf course.
