Cabin John History Run & Walk

Get Ready for the Cabin John History Run & Walk on Saturday May 6 at 7:30am

But what is it?

⇒ All are welcome to join either an enjoyably-paced 10K jog or an easygoing 5K walk through Cabin John and adjacent neighborhoods. 

The 2023 History Run & Walk has a focus on Education and Civil Rights.  We will stop for a bit of discussion at each site – bring your knowledge and your questions. 

When is it?

⇒ Both the joggers and the walkers will start at 7:30am on Saturday, May 6th.

Where do we start?

⇒ We will start at the Captain’s Market, and end at the driveway of 7507 MacArthur Blvd (Lewis’s home). Corner of 75th Place and MacArthur.

Will there be food?

⇒ Yes!  Snacks, water, and Gatorade will be available at the end (7507 MacArthur).  

I have a soccer game to go to, can I drop out half-way through?

⇒ Of course!  We’d be happy to have you join any part of either event.

I want to come! What should I do next?

⇒ Please register at  You’ll have the opportunity to register for the run or the walk.  

Can I get a map with stops and historical descriptions so I can do this on my own?

⇒ Sure, we’ll post that on the CJ Website afterwards.  But what better way to spend a lovely Saturday morning than with your friends and neighbors.  

Lastly, a big thank you to Elliott Schoen and Meredith McGuire for conceiving of and leading the 2023 History Run/Walk, and to Judith Welles for compiling and sharing her comprehensive knowledge of Cabin John history in her book and writings, on which this “Education and Civil Rights” focused itinerary rests.
