Piece of Cake 5K/10K 2023

March 19 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am


MCRRC was born in March of 1978, though Piece of Cake was created more than 25 years ago (March 24, 1996)!  We invite you to join us in celebrating the club’s birthday.  We are pleased to announce that Piece of Cake has a new location:  moving forward, the race will be held at Falls Road Local Park (also known as Hadley’s Park) in Potomac, MD. The parking lot at 12600 Falls Road will fill up before 8:00 AM, so it is suggested to park along the parking lanes of 8720 Falls Chapel Way, 8904 Cold Spring Road, and in the surrounding neighborhood.



  • 8:30 AM – 10K (CS) and 5K Start
  • 8:35 AM – Young Runs Start – 0.5 Mile & 1 Mile (YR)

MCRRC Members –

This race is part of our low-key race series and is FREE for MCRRC members.  Race registration is not required for members; however, members must signup for a 2023 bib & chip. If you have a 2022 (or older) chip, please bring it with you to exchange for your 2023 bib & chip.  If you are a new member, or no longer have an older chip, please remember to bring a $5 chip deposit with you.

*** If you already requested a personalized 2023 bib, you do NOT need to register online – your bib will be waiting for you at registration.

Non-MCRRC Members –

Registration will open to non-MCRRC members at a cost of $15 for participants ages 18 & over and $10 for participants under 18.  Online registration will remain open until the start of the race.  Late registrants may register online before leaving the house or from your smartphone at the race site.  Please remember to bring your credit card or cash with you if you plan to register on race morning. Non-members can register here.

Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area.  A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.



There will be no timing chips used for the young runs.  Young runs will begin at 8:35 AM and participants can run a 1/2 mile or 1 mile.  The runs are FREE, but all participants must be registered by a parent or guardian prior to race day (members and non-members). Register here! *** IMPORTANT NOTE: Parents or Guardians DO NOT need to register for the young runs to accompany your child.  You are welcome to jump right in with them, if needed!



If you are a non-MCRRC member, and can no longer attend the race, please contact office@mcrrc.org so that we can move your registration to another MCRRC low-key event and open up a spot for someone else.  Monetary refunds will not be provided.



MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers.  Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event – please signup here to volunteer!
