Starting off your week with a brew and a run isn’t too bad. Meet at Port City Brewing Company for its Joggers & Lagers event. You’ll head out from the tasting room at 7 PM for a one, three, or five-mile run, after which you’ll stick around for a beer, of course.
3950 Wheeler Ave., Alexandria


Bring your doggo to District Dogs in Navy Yard for a group two- to five-mile run. The Ruff Runs crew will meet at 6:15 and take off around 6:30 PM.
1221 Van St. SE #110


Calling all moms: The group Fit4Mom is hosting a Stroller Barre class at 9:30 AM in the Mosaic District. If you’re new to the group, your first class is free. All you need to do is show up with your stroller and a yoga mat, and you’ll be ready for the mix of pilates, yoga, and barre-based exercises.
