The 2017 Prevent Cancer 5k Walk/Run and Health Fair will take place on Sunday, November 5, 2017, beginning at the home of the Washington Nationals baseball team. The 2017 5k Walk/Run is an unofficial 5k route that will take participants around the beautiful Capitol Riverfront neighborhood with the start and finish inside Nationals Park. This is not a timed race and the event is open to family and friends of all ages. Kids 10 and under are FREE. We also encourage you to bring your dog, but all four-legged friends must be on leashes at all times during the event.
