HORIZONS 5K & FUN RUN
Join us at Norwood School on Sunday, October 21, 2018!
The Horizons at Norwood 5K is a professionally timed race that starts and ends on the campus of Norwood School in Bethesda, Maryland. The fast, flat course winds through a beautiful residential neighborhood. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female 5K finishers.
The one-mile fun run takes place entirely on Norwood's campus.
All proceeds from the 5K and Fun Run support Horizons Greater Washington. Runners and walkers are welcome in both events.
The Horizons at Norwood 5K begins on the Norwood School campus, continues down River Road in the direction of Potomac Village, loops around Harrington Drive, Inglewood Court, and Inglewood Drive, and returns to Norwood along River Road. Police officers will be stationed at major intersections. Click here for the 5K course map.
The one-mile Fun Run takes place entirely on campus. Runners start in the Lower School circle and head down Owen Drive toward River Road. The route cuts through the small parking lot near the end of Owen Drive, continues across the bottom of the playing fields, and returns to pavement at the Middle School entrance to Norwood. Runners continue up the driveway, through the Middle School parking lot, and down past the baseball field, where they make a left onto the sidewalk along Bradley Boulevard. The last leg of the route proceeds up the school driveway and finishes with a counter-clockwise jog around the Lower School circle to the finish line. Click here for the Fun Run course map.
