Summer Fun Runs

July 6th – August 10, 2023
1.75 or 3 miles

Every summer PGRC partners with the Greenbelt Recreation Department to host the Buddy Attick Summer Fun Run series. The series is part of Get Active Greenbelt and provides an excellent opportunity for all levels of runners and walkers to exercise in a friendly and welcoming environment throughout the summer months. Best of all…it’s FREE!!!!


Races take place EVERY Thursday @ 7pm (registration 6:15pm-6:45pm).


The course will take runners and walkers around the scenic and shaded Buddy Attick Park lake path for their choice of either 1.75 miles (1 lap) or 3 miles (2 laps). Meet at Greenbelt Youth Center parking lot (99 Centerway Greenbelt, MD 20770 – behind the library).


The fun runs are open to all runners so bring your friends and family.
