About 3,000 runners took part in the 18th Annual Pike’s Peek 10K on Sunday, a race that took on special significance for some almost a week after the Boston Marathon bombings.
The race from the Shady Grove Metro station to White Flint Mall went off without a hitch and with an increased police presence as a precaution.
Participants and spectators braved a chilly morning for the race and food and activities in the White Flint Mall parking lot.
The top male finisher finished in 29 minutes, just off the race record 28 minutes and 11 second-run in 2011. Check the race website for race results.
The D.C. area has lots of water parks that combine cool water and fun.
