5K, Kids Dash &
new! virtual race
Virtual Race: NEW this year! Can't make it to DC but still want to participate? Join our virtual race and receive a race shirt, bib and finisher medal to run with friends at home!
Race4Respect™ 5K & 1K Kids Dash, presented by Koons of Silver Spring, is the only event dedicated to Down Syndrome Awareness that stops traffic in the nation's capital. Recently named the 2017 BEST 5K by Running Washington, Race4Respect™ was founded on the belief that if given an opportunity to experience an event together with someone who has Down syndrome, or any other disability, it will help to eliminate negative stereotypes and judgments. These are the people that will one day be more inclined to hire these individuals, help them at the bus stop, chat with them at a coffee shop, or simply believe in their ability before automatically dismissing them as unable. Race4Respect™ offers a USATF sanctioned 5K, 1K Kids Dash and a Virtual Race Option.
