Next Races: Larry Noel 15K and National Capital 20-Miler

The 2014 Bunion Derby races are complete. Next up, we have our two fall marathon preparation races.

altThe Larry Noel 15K Race will take place in Greenbelt Maryland on Sunday afternoon, August 31st. It's a great mid-distance race that's local, comes with a great shirt, and is reasonably priced.  Why pay $120+transportation+hotel to get into the Virginia Beach Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon?  The course features the same start and finish as the George Washington's Birthday Marathon and Relay, a preview for those who are planning to run in February 2015. There's also a 3K Fun Run, so bring the whole family.  Click here for complete information and online registration.

We'll host the National Capital 20-Miler in Carderock on Sunday morning, September 28th, four weeks later and exactly four weeks before the Marine Corps Marathon.  The distance and timing make it the perfect "tune-up" race for MCM and other fall marathons.  There's also a 5-Miler "lite" version for runners who aren't up for the longer race.  Click here for complete information and online registration.

We need lots of people to put on these races, so if you (or a family member or friend) can help, please volunteer!  Click here to volunteer for Larry Noel; (link coming soon) to volunteer for the NatCap 20-Miler.

 

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.
