Girma Gebre Earns First WWBH Victory in Race Postponed Five Weeks Ago

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD – Runners at the fourth annual Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon had to wait five weeks for today’s event, but it was worth the wait as they were treated to perfect weather conditions.

Originally slated for October 6, the 13.1-mile USATF-sanctioned footrace fell victim to last month’s U.S. government shutdown. The course’s first eight miles run through the scenic George Washington Memorial Parkway, a national park, which was affected when employees of the National Park Service and U.S. Park Police were temporarily furloughed.
