The Pike’s Peek 10K and Kids Fun Run is this Sunday, meaning part of Rockville Pike from the Shady Grove Metro Station to White Flint will be closed much of Sunday morning as runners make their way south.
The race starts at 7:50 a.m. on Sunday just south of Shady Grove and winds it way down to White Flint Mall, where brunch and festivities are planned. The 1K Run Around for kids and 50-meter Toddler Trot are set for around 9:30 a.m. in the Mall parking lot, which will be tight on parking with runners, food and other festivities planned as part of the 10K.
The Montgomery County Road Runners Club is organizing the event with sponsors Kaiser Permanente.
Organizers are asking runners not to take Metro to the starting location, but instead take Metro’s Red Line back to Shady Grove after the race.
