SurviveDC: Chase or be chased. (Creative Commons photo (

“SurviveDC is a race through the streets of D.C. You will try to make it to six checkpoints as fast as you can, while avoiding being caught by chasers. Those who survive will be praised and feted at the end. Those who fall will become chasers themselves, rising to pursue their former friends and allies.”

The volunteer-run race is slated for 7 p.m. May 19, and organizers say more than 1,200 people are expected to attempt the 6-six-mile trek. More photos from last year’s race are here.
