Few spots left for Parks & People event
The Falls Road Running Store has a few spots left for its 10th annual Celtic Solstice 5 miler in Druid Hill Park on Dec. 19.
Some of the proceeds will go to the Parks & People Foundation, which supports educational, recreational and environmental prorgram.
The course runs through Druid Hill Park, past the Maryland Zoo, the Rawlings Conservatory and other park sites. The race has grown from a hundred runners to more than 2,000 registered so far this year, according to race organizer Jim Adams of Falls Road Running.
There are still a few spots left for a $15 fee. You have to go the store at 6247 Falls Road in Mt. Washington, though, because online registration is closed. Organizers are out of race shirts but at the end of the event they are offering spiced wassail from Boordy Vineyards.
