5th Annual Best of the Best 5K – 2015

Rory J. Weichbrod Unfinished Business, Inc. (RJW) will be hosting its 4th Annual Rory and Adam’s Best of the Best 5k run/walk event. The event takes place on a certified closed road course (MD12001JS) registered with the USATF in Sligo Creek Park of Silver Spring, Maryland. This event honor’s Rory Weichbrod and Adam Hosinski both lost their lives at the hands of a drunk driver.


Back by popular demand, our Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Contest. If your favorite pet is up for some competition, bring him/her along for a costume contest that will take place following the run.


We will also have an extensive list of silent auction and raffle items available. You can see a list of our current items on our website. Be sure to check back frequently as new items are still coming in.



Available following the run and provided by Panera Bread, Starbucks Coffee, and Trader Joes.



The course is along Sligo Creek Parkway on the paved road between Forest Glen Rd and University Blvd. While the race is timed for those race enthusiasts, it is just as fun for families and friends to come out and enjoy. There will be course marshals stationed along the course, a water station, as well as refreshments at the Finish Line!
The course map can be viewed by clicking the link above and is available on our website.
