Whether you’re a fitness freak, news guru or simply enjoy waking up before the crack of dawn on a Saturday to run 5Ks, the National Press Club BEAT THE DEADLINE 5K is the race for you (and for Chevrolet)!

For the third year, Chevrolet is sponsoring special events in conjunction with the race on September 5 and 7 in Washington, DC.  The 5K benefits the ongoing work of the National Press Club Journalism Institute. The Institute is committed to help working journalists improve their skills through ongoing training and programming of future journalists through scholarships that promote diversity within the profession.  This year’s honorary race marshalls are Tony Horton of P90X and Erika Gonzalez, reporter and anchor at News4.

Each year, we build Team Chevy to run the race, inviting area runners to join our team.  This year we’re working with area bloggers and fitness gurus to build the best Team Chevy yet.  Each blogger is inviting one lucky reader to join them on Team Chevy to run the race on Sept. 7, 2013.  That’s not all! You’re also invited to attend a work out with Tony Horton on Sept. 5, 2013 at the National Press Club.

Now for the fun part, who do you want to run with?  Meet our Team Chevy bloggers below and you decide!
