Since 2000, and with the help of the runners and sponsors, more than $700,000 has been raised to help deserving students to attend college and pursue a career in journalism.
Considering the workout and the rules of engagement, we're wondering who would ever want to pursue a career in journalism. Hats off to participants!
Rules of engagement:
- The BEAT THE DEADLINE 5K will occur rain or shine.
- The race could however be delayed or cancelled in the event lightning strikes the area within 20 minutes of the race start time.
- If lightning occurs, cancellation will be at the discretion of race officials and National Press Club staff.
- If the event is cancelled, we will not be issuing refunds for the BEAT THE DEADLINE 5K, but plan on holding the pancake breakfast inside the Club.
