2021’s edition of the Juneteeth (Half) Marathon takes us along the entirety of the Civil War Defenses of Washington Trail (Trail Map PDF). Definietly one of DC’s hidden gems, this proper trail run presents this year’s participants with two distance options:
Urban Athletic Club - 804 N St NW, Washington, DC, 20001
To celebrate Juneteenth, we will be riding 6.19 miles in solidarity to represent the date, June 19th. Following the 6.19 group ride, riders have the option of riding longer distances by joining either the 18-mile group, or the 65-mile group. Together, these distances represent the year of Juneteenth, 1865.
All Riders are welcome to join the 6.19-mile route. If you are interested in riding the longer distances we ask that you’re able to keep 12+ MPH for the 18-mile ride and 15+ MPH for the 65-mile ride.
