July 24, 2014 | By Melinda Cooke |

Sometimes it’s time for a change.
This year the NPC BEAT THE DEADLINE 5K, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 6, has a new race route.

Same start and finish outside the National Press Club on F St. NW between 13th and 14th St. Racers will proceed down scenic Pennsylvania Ave. to Constitution Ave. This year, we make an exciting left turn onto 3rd St. and turn around near H St. to come back to the finish via the reverse route.

After the race, all runners and their guests are invited up the Club for the famous post-race breakfast. We will announce the team results and give out cash prizes and medals to top finishers.

This year’s cash prizes are sponsored by Mazda.
