FITDC HerStory 5k

March 4, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Inspired by Mayor Muriel Bowser and the history-making women of our nation’s capital, the FITDC HerStory 5K, powered by AETNA, is a free run/walk that attracts thousands of DC residents and folks from around the country to commemorate Women’s History Month, live and in person from Freedom Plaza. Hosted by FITDC and the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, this annual event pays homage to the 350,000 women and girls living in the nation’s capital, and the 165 million women and girls across the country. It’s our 5th Anniversary! Get ready for a downtown DC party featuring a pre-race lineup of speakers headlined by Mayor Bowser, a scenic race route down Pennsylvania Ave, a plaza adorned with quotes for HERstory making women,  pop-up exhibits about women’s history, and a post-race finish festival with music, giveaways, and vendors from local women-owned businesses
