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. Here is a message from Sherri Morgan, organizer of the MBT5K Run/Walk:
Saturday, May 10, 2014 is the date planned for the Fourth Annual MBT5K, to be held on the paved, off-road portion of the Metropolitan Branch Trail between the NoMa and Brookland Metro stations. The NoMa entrances to this section of the trail are at L St. NE (stairs, just next to train tracks), M St. NE (bike/ped ramp next to train bridge) and the stairs/elevator next to Au Bon Pain. The race has been growing steadily with strong community support, so this year we anticipate 500 – 600 runners. Volunteers are always welcome; runners under 18 are able to register for free. We will be posting announcements on the event website and Facebook page .
