Join H Street Runners for the Running of the Streetcar

This Saturday at 3pm the H Street Runners will host the inaugural Running of the Streetcar Run & Celebration. Runners will board the streetcar at the Hopscotch Bridge, ride to the end of the line, and then race the streetcar back to the starting point (to be followed by drinks on H Street). Details from the Facebook event page appear below.

Inspired by our club motto --"Faster than the Streetcar!" -- this event involves a fun run along the H Street/Benning Road Streetcar Line followed by libations at some of our favorite H Street establishments. We'll begin by boarding the Streetcar at the ...
Hopscotch Bridge stop for a ride all the way to the end of the line at the intersection of Benning Road and Oklahoma Avenue, NE -- a distance of approximately 2 miles. From there we'll proceed to run or jog "faster than the streetcar" back to the start of the line (or thereabouts). Once the inaugural run is finished, come toast the arrival of Streetcar with celebratory libations at some of our fine H Street bars and pubs. 
So come help us celebrate the glorious boondoggle that is the H Street/Benning Road Streetcar with an epic event that we hope will become an annual tradition for H Street Runners. And bring friends, roommates, significant others, etc., etc. This should be a fun way to meet other runners and neighbors.
