Younger Chemists Committee

Serving the Needs of Early Career Chemists

Looking forward to DC?  Us, too! Get excited for the Fun Run in Fall 2017!

Healthy scientists are happy scientists!  Stretch your tired legs and join fellow chemists for the Younger Chemists Committee/Member Insurance Program's 5K Fun Run/Walk. The  bi-annual Fun Run, sponsored by the ACS Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) and ACS Member Insurance Program, will be held on Monday, August 21st, 2017 at 6:45 AM.

City Running Tours will provide American Chemical Society and its attendees with a guided running tour of National Mall, monuments and surrounding neighborhood in Washington, D.C. The meeting location for the run will be the southern entrance of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, at 801 Mount Vernon Pl. NW. The run will begin and end at this location.

The cost of the Fun Run is $30 per participant ($15 for students). Participants can register with ACS National Meeting registration (online or on site). If you are not attending the national meeting, you can still participate in the Fun Run! Check it out here:

No in person registration will be allowed on Monday morning.   Each participant will need to sign a waiver prior to participation.
