The Ronald Reagan Parkway will be closed to traffic from 11pm Friday, February 13th to 7pm Saturday, February 14th 2009. There will be the annual 'Run the Reagan' race, but once that's done, skaters, cyclists and other walkers/runners can jump on and enjoy the 7 mile hilly stretch.

While driving this entire section twice a day - slowly to avoid all the speed traps - I have been able to notice the road coming apart around the Bethesda School Road exit. But otherwise, the chance to skate a different seven miles is alluring!

The RUN starts EARLIER than the non-event for the rest of us, so here are some details for runners from http://www.runthereagan.com
