The Edgemoor Classic 5K has become one of the area’s most popular race events, with runners winding through the tree-lined neighborhood near downtown Bethesda and raising money for Bethesda Elementary School and the Bethesda Library in the process.
This year’s 15th Annual Edgemoor Classic 5K will mark a milestone moment of sorts. The event has raised thousands of dollars for the library and elementary school, both of which border the neighborhood on Arlington Road.
The race is set for Sunday, Nov. 4 at 8:30 a.m. with a start and finish behind the elementary school. Through Oct. 28, the registration fee is $20 for adults and $10 for those age 18 and under. The adult fee then kicks up to $25 through race day.
The Edgemoor Citizens Association, which puts on the 5K, is celebrating the 15th annual race with a special race t-shirt ($15 for adults, $7.50 for kids) with designs from previous Edgemoor Classics.
The Jayna Murray 5K Run/Walk to honor the memory of slain Lululemon employee Jayna Murray was moved from its original date of Nov. 4 to Nov. 11 so it wouldn’t conflict with the Classic, Bethesda Patch reported last month.
