Anything you like. Although you’re more than welcome to wear your Embassy Run Tees, we encourage everyone to decide for themselves. You will be issued a bib with your name on it. If for some reason, we run out, we will issue one with the name of a participating Embassy.
The shirts and bibs help identify us to the Embassies and other visitors. Most of the Embassies will be providing head-of-the-line privileges.
Yes, even for head-of-the-line privileges. So please minimize what you bring. A fanny pack with cell, keys, credit card, metro card, ID and some cash would be perfect. You’re welcome to bring a camel pack, but with all the stops for water, you’ll probably won’t need it. Please try not to pick up souvenir items at the Embassies since you don’t wanna run with them. (At Belgium, a volunteer will be there to pick up your bottle of beer)
Food & Drinks
Some Embassies will provide complimentary food & beverages. Expect a Red Bull @Austria, Heineken and cookie @Netherlands, Wine @Hungary and of course good ole Happy Hour beer or rail & Apps @Mr Smith’s. You’re welcome to eat/drink at the remaining Embassies, but please bring cash (and try not to stuff yourself too much)
Not at all. If you are enjoying your time in one Embassy and prefer to stay, we won’t fault you. There’s no requirements to finish the entire run. However, we would like to see you at Mr Smith’s of Georgetown by 5pm for our post-run party — they’ll be complimentary food and beverages so we highly recommend coming.
