The Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT) 5K Run/Walk is one of our favorite area events, because it brings greater awareness to this fantastic resource. The race will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at the MBT entrance on S Street and 4th Street, NE. Registration is now open for the 2013 race at the low cost of just $25 and the first 150 runners under age 18 can register for free. Click here to Register. If you don’t want to run, consider volunteering. This will be the third year the race is being held, and organizers are expecting participation to increase again for 2013, as it has with each year. There will be awards for the top male and female overall winners, as well as age group winners, T-shirts, and post-race refreshments.
