About The Race

As before, the race will start and finish at Janney Elementary School and cover the same USATF-certified neighborhood course through AU Park.

This year we are making some changes to make this the biggest and best Janney 5K ever.  We have partnered with another local race, the Women & Politics Institutes’ (WPI) Race for Representation which was previously run on the AU campus.  The PTA has decided to partner with WPI to share costs on what are the very high fixed costs we have pay to keep the race going.  For example, we must pay the city approximately $15,000 to pay for Police fees to close streets to keep our runners safe.  By partnering with WPI we will combine our target audiences and work to draw more runners from around the greater Tenlytown community which we hope will mean even more runners than ever before.  By combining our races, we divide our costs resulting, we hope, with a greater net profit to the Janney PTA.

The Janney PTA thanks you support for the race and hopes you can join us on April 29, 2017.
