About This Activity

The Somerset Elementary Back-to-School Classic is a fall community racing tradition!  The Back-to-School Classic features an 8K, a 2K, and a Fun Run for Children.  The scenic USATF-certified 8K course winds through the gently rolling hills of Somerset, Chevy Chase, and Friendship Heights, while the 2K course winds through the Somerset neighborhood.  The Fun Run, for young athletes 11 years old and younger, takes place at Somerset Elementary School following the 2K race.

Proceeds of the race help Somerset Elementary School provide scholarships for its after-school programs, build its library collections and classroom resources, and offer a rich cultural arts program.  On behalf of Somerset students, thank you for your support!
