The Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT) 5K Run/Walk is one of our favorite area events, because it brings the community together and raises greater awareness to this fantastic resource. Now in its 5th year, the 5K Walk/Run will be Saturday, May 2, 2015 with a race time at 9:00 a.m. This time around the location of the start/finish line will be the trail entrance at the Rhode Island Avenue Shopping Center and the new pedestrian bridge at the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station. Register here – to run, volunteer, or sponsor the event. Also, there is free registration for runners under 18.
