YOU DO NOT NEED TO RE-REGISTER IF YOU PREVIOUSLY REGISTERED FOR THE JUNE 8TH EVENT.   This re-opening of registration is only for those who did not register for the June event.  All of June's registrations will automatically carry over to the new date, Sept. 21st.


We are proud to present the 3rd annual Navy Yard 5k!  This fun, free, and scenic 5k run will take place at The Navy Yard on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, rain or shine.  The race is open only to employees of The Navy Yard.  In addition to the race, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, a health & wellness expo will take place on Central Green (new location this year!), featuring tenants of The Navy Yard sharing how to educate and improve on all aspects of workplace health, wellness, nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle.  This event is a great way for the community to come together, be active, and have fun!  Whether you participate as a runner, walker, volunteer, or as a spectator, we hope to see you there!
