Blue Moon 5k Fun Run

Friends of the National Arboretum present the 2018 Blue Moon 5k Fun Run on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at the U.S. National Arboretum.  Enjoy a moonlit brisk 5K course through collections and meadows. Stay until the end for a full moon celebration with food, drink, music, and fun! There’s not another blue moon until 2020 so join us for this special evening. No children under 16 and no pets. Please enter through the R street NE Gates (GPS: 2400 R St. NE Washington DC 20002)

  • Runners and  walkers welcome as long as they can finish within one hour.
