Race Day Fail

Race Day Fail

Running a 5K or 15K for a good cause sounded like a great way to spend a Saturday for lots of local runners. Some never made it to the start line, though...we look at what went wrong at National Harbor.

Things did not go as planned Saturday at the Hot Chocolate 5K/15K at National Harbor. Traffic was a factor, with some runners never making it to the race. But thousands of runners say that the problems went well beyond that. We talk to people involved in the planning and execution of the race about what went wrong.
