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.

Track Workouts for August 2014

Track Workouts for August 2014 are now posted under the Weekly Runs - Wednesday Night Track page.
