The Parkway Classic was held this year in honor of Peter Laboy, an Alexandria Police Officer who was shot in the line-of-duty earlier this year. Alexandria Police personnel were collecting donations for Laboy’s recovery during the race. The race also offered the opportunity for runners to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing. All runners were provided with memorial blue/yellow ribbons to honor the victims, while many of those in the Washington, DC area who had actually run in the Boston Marathon wore their Marathon Runners’ jackets to honor their fellow runners.
