Washington, D.C.

Runners participating in this competition (taking place this weekend) get to experience the National Mall enveloped in pink clouds of cherry blossoms. You’ll start the race at the Washington Monument then head toward the Memorial Bridge overlooking Arlington Cemetery. The course loops back past the Lincoln Memorial into Potomac Park and along the banks of the Tidal Basin. (cherryblossom.org)
