Team Lu­gar

The Washington Times Weekly - - NATIONAL -

May 2 marked the 26th straight year that the 75-year-old Sen. Richard G. Lu­gar, In­di­ana Repub­li­can, laced up his sneak­ers and com­peted in the an­nual Amer­ica’s Life In­sur­ers ACLI Cap­i­tal Chal­lenge three-mile race through Ana­cos­tia Park.

This year’s race-starter was Kathrine Switzer, the first wo­man to of­fi­cially en­ter the Bos­ton Marathon, and who went on to win the 1974 New York Marathon.

Twelve U.S. sen­a­tors, 35 con­gress­men and a large field of Wash­ing­ton VIPs ran in the race.
