Event Description

*ADVANCED TICKETING is now closed; however, you can buy tickets at the door!


Long May You Run--A concert to benefit roadrunner and pedestrian safety in memory of Karen Dubin.

Featuring musical performances by The Ana Egge Band, Anne McCue, The Doughboys, Jason Roberts (Norah Jones Band), Mary Battiata of Little Pink, and special guests. 

Karen Dubin was a force of nature.  Though it sounds trite to say, she lived life to the fullest.  Karen hated wasting time (and even moldly leftovers, for that matter), and had the rare gift of being able to make even a perfect stranger a lifelong friend.  Her curious mind was fed by perpetual travel for the Department of Commerce, which couldn't ask for a better ambassador.  Most of all she loved her family and friends.  Her loyalty to them was fierce and feisty.  She was also devoted, some might say addicted, to exercise.  Her two-a-day workout regimen kept her fit and sane.  But on April 14, 2011, a senseless and preventable running accident cut short her ebullient life, as confusing signage and dangerous traffic patterms on the George Washington Parkway led a driver to leave the roadway and hit Karen on a beautiful Spring day in Washington D.C. 

Long May You Run, a concert honoring Karen Dubin's memory, will be held on January 26, 2013, at The Hamilton Live, DC's state-of-the art concert venue.

Proceeds will go towards raising awareess for increased runner/pedestrian safety in Washington and nationwide through the Road Runners Club of America.
