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

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.
