Join Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC residents for the 1st Annual Frederick Douglass 5K to celebrate his 200 years of life and legacy! This will also be the official ribbon cutting for the new Oxon Run Trail!

Commemorate his 200th birthday by running this fun event at the newly renovated Oxon Run Park Trail!

Famed 19th-century author and orator Frederick Douglass was an eminent human rights leader in the anti-slavery movement and the first African-American citizen to hold a high U.S. government rank.

Free Registration HERE!

[Ed Note: Whoever thought of this is a Douglassonian. Good work, Mayor Bowser and DPR! You are the first city I know to do a run to honor Douglass. It’s only right.]
