Q: What is the cost of the SMR?

Q: Can I just show up? Is there any protocol?
A: Yes, you can just come and show up. There is no protocol, except sometimes we ask if there are any new people just to say hi.

Q: How fast is everyone?
A: We have all paces from 8 minute miles to 14 minute miles.

Q: What if I don't want to go the full planned distance?
A: No problem, just turn around when you've gone half as far as you want to. There are usually runners going 2-3 miles shorter, and even some maniacs who go further.

Q: I have a specific race I am training for, will this group work for me?
A: The SMR functions as an informal run without formal coaching. We will have coaches on-hand, but if you are looking for a specific time goal or race strategy we suggest you check out the DC Road Runners formal half or full marathon training programs.

Q: What is the difference between the SLR and the SMR
A: The SMR is a new concept geared to runners who are looking to start distance running and will offer run distances of 2-13miles. The SMR is also geared to medium to slow paces. The SLR typically is geared to higher distances and fast to medium paces.
