George Washington Patriot Run

George Washington's Mount Vernon is pleased to present the 9th Annual George Washington Patriot Run on Sunday, September 8, 2024. Our race features a 10 Miler and 5K course that welcomes all runners to participate in person!

The George Washington Memorial Parkway (GWMP) is a 25-mile-long stretch of highway that runs along the south bank of the Potomac River from Mount Vernon, VA, northwest to McLean, VA. It is one of the most beautiful and iconic stretches of highway in the nation. The racecourse uses both lanes of a 5-mile section of the GWMP between the GW Parkway Circle and W. Boulevard Drive. George Washington's Mount Vernon is grateful to the National Park Service for permitting the Patriot Run to use the GWMP.

 

All participants will receive a commemorative George Washington Patriot Run technical t-shirt and a spectacular finisher medal engraved with George Washington's bust. Awards will be presented to 1st place overall, by age division, and for the Military/First Responder categories.

The Finish Festival will offer music, food and beverage concessions, and a free beer for each runner. Thank you for choosing to run with us. We hope you enjoy the race!
