Welcome to the 1st Annual Dupont Circle Club 5K Puzzle Run! Why is it called a puzzle run? The first 200 runners to register will receive a medal that is a puzzle piece. This year's puzzle piece will have a picture of the Fountain at the Dupont Circle Landmark. Successive year participants will receive another puzzle piece with a different Dupont Circle Landmark.
