Monday Night Runs

Please note: Monday Night FootMall is held every week, other than on Federal holidays or otherwise noted.

This free weekly run is a great way to get in some additional mileage to add to your total for the week. This out-and-back run is an especially attractive option for dark winter evenings, as it is a well-lit and transited route, much of the surface is soft gravel, and it is mostly flat with two good training hills. All paces are welcome. Most weeks the run is led by Coaches Sasha and Jay.


We begin by meeting and stretching in the lobby of Potomac Plaza Apartments, a block and a half away from the Foggy Bottom metro, at about 6:30 pm. At 6:45 pm, we head out down Virginia Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial, loop up and around the Capitol Building, and then head back to Potomac Plaza Apartments for a total distance of 6.5 miles. Those who want a shorter run may instead loop around the Washington Monument, for a total of 3 miles, or take advantage of several other turnaround points along the Mall for a different total mileage.

Upon return to Potomac Plaza at around 8:00, sometimes we proceed on foot to 51st State Tavern, on Pennsylvania and 25th Street, for 50-cent tacos and $2.75 Buds or whatever your choice of beverage, or to Chadwick's on the waterfront in Georgetown, for half-price burgers and beer. You may leave dry clothes at Potomac Plaza to change into after the run.
