Between 8:40 am and 9:00 am, there will be no vehicular access to the school.

Race Logistics

The Horizons at Norwood 5K begins on the campus of  Norwood School at 8821 River Road in Bethesda, Maryland. After leaving the campus, the route continues down River Road in the direction of Potomac Village, loops around Harrington Drive, Inglewood Court, and Inglewood Drive, and returns to Norwood along River Road. Police officers will be stationed at major intersections.

The one-mile Fun Run takes place entirely on campus. Runners start in the Lower School circle and head down Owen Drive toward River Road. The route cuts through the small parking lot near the end of Owen Drive, continues across the bottom of the playing fields, and returns to pavement at the Middle School entrance to Norwood. Runners continue up the driveway, through the Middle School parking lot, and down past the baseball field, where they make a left onto the sidewalk along Bradley Boulevard. (Do not enter the roadway.) The last leg of the route proceeds up Weedie Block Drive (the Bradley Blvd entrance to the school) and finishes with a counter-clockwise jog around the Lower School circle to the finish line.
