It's official! We're running in-person!

Last year, over 2,000 runners representing all 50 states and three countries came together for the 20th annual Autism Speaks Potomac 5K, raising over $300,000 in support of the autism community. We are excited to carry that same energy forward to our 2021 event!

With every mile logged, you are helping to create a world filled with potential for people with autism. We can’t wait to run with you on July 4th!
