Pikes Peek 10K Returns To North Bethesda This Sunday

The 2013 Annual Pike's Peek 10K (file photo)The annual Pike’s Peek 10K will again take over much of Rockville Pike on Sunday morning, with a post-race festival planned for the parking lot in front of White Flint Mall.

The race is one of the premier events in the county, with runners starting near the Shady Grove Metro station and continuing down Rockville Pike until the finish line at White Flint Mall.

It’s also one of the fastest, with a mostly downhill course.

For those traveling on the road on Sunday morning, the race is set to start at 7:50 a.m. and will take up all of northbound Rockville Pike from the starting line to Gude Drive in Rockville. At that point, competitors must run in the two median lanes of the Pike, so look for lane closures.

The post-race festival will include plenty of activities, promotions and food from Mama Lucia restaurant.
