2015 Steve Thompson 8K

The Steve Thompson 8K is the sixth race of the 2015 Bunion Derby series!

Course: A loop around Lake Accotink on the aptly-named Lake Accotink Trail. A small part of the course goes through a suburban development and runners may encounter light vehicle traffic.  COURSE CHANGE NOTE:  Due to ongoing construction on the trail around Lake Accotink the course will not be a complete circuit around the lake as a section of the trail will be closed. See the new course for this year in this Gmaps-Pedometer link for a preview.

Registration and Fees: Online advance registration through 6 p.m. the day before the race: free for members, $5 for non-members.  On-site, day-of-race registration: $5 for members, $10 for non-members, check (payable for DC Road Runners) or exact change appreciated. No refunds.

Volunteers:  Yes, please volunteer!  We always need volunteers, including friends and family who accompany runners to the race.  To volunteer, contact race director Ian Clements.

Lake Accotink may be reached from I-95 by taking Old Keene Mill Rd. west to right on Hanover Ave. Turn left on Highland Ave. and then right on Accotink Park Rd. Entrance is on the left. Click here for Google map and directions. Go about a half-mile beyond the point indicated in the Google map (which is actually the park headquarters office) ... you'll know you're in the right place when you see a big open parking area with an elevated railroad trestle.  Park in this area.  The race starts on the edge of the lake, on the right side of the spillway as you're facing it from the parking lot.
