Join Teens Run DC for the third annual Mentoring Matters 5K! This event is open to the entire community and will serve as a celebration of the power of mentorship. Join us in running or walking the 3.1 mile course through beautiful Anacostia Park. Run for fun. Run for health. Run to honor someone who has played an important mentoring role in your life.

Teens Run DC is thrilled to be hosting the 3rd annual Mentoring Matters 5K in celebration of youth mentorship throughout DC. Our organization is all about building community and we are excited to welcome members of the surrounding communities to join us in beautiful Anacostia Park for this event. The park is very special to Teens Run DC; not only is it the location of our annual race but our Saturday practice routes make consistent use of the Riverwalk Trail and our organization also hosts the Anacostia parkrun once per month. Our youth are the most important part of creating a vision for an inspiring future and we welcome folks from all parts of DC to join us on May 12 in the spirit of health and fitness, to witness the power of mentorship in action, and to celebrate the Year of the Anacostia!
