Next Races: National Capital 20-Miler and 5-Miler, Sunday, September 28th

natcap 20 miler logo smallOur next races will be the National Capital 20-Miler and 5-Miler on Sunday, September 28th. Exactly four weeks before the Marine Corps Marathon, the 20-Miler is the perfect tune-up race for any fall marathon.  The 5-Miler is a fast event that's great for building speed and strength.  Both races feature a flat, straight, scenic course along the C&O Canal Towpath, from Carderock to the Key Bridge and back.  Click here for the event's web site and link to online registration. 

The race directors are looking for help with staging the event, and this is your last chance for 2014 Bunion Derby volunteer creditPlease click here to volunteer

Track Workouts Posted for September & October

Track Workouts for September and October have now been posted under "Weekly Runs" tab.  Note that many of our workouts (including this week -- Tuesday September 2nd) will be on TUESDAY evenings instead of Wednesday due to scheduled games at W-L Stadium.  Also, we will now revert to our regular start time of 7:15.  Thank you.  


DCRR Sponsored Water Stop at the Marine Corps Marathon

The 39th Marine Corps Marathon is October 26, 2014. This year the club will be supporting water stop #10, which is located on Army Navy Drive near Pentagon City and Crystal City (meaning that it's metro accessible & there will be plenty of parking). We need lots of club members to staff this stop, and it's probably going to be the best time ever, so please come out and volunteer with us (or have your friends and family volunteer if you're running the race). If you are interested in volunteering or with any questions, please e-mail Alison as soon as possible.
