Next Race: Gar Williams Half Marathon

Our next race is the second Snowball Series race, the Gar Williams Half Marathon on Sunday, December 16th. We expect the race to sell out, so sign up now to ensure your place at the start line. We need volunteers to help at Gar Williams; here is the link to volunteer.


Predictions and Resolutions 5K


pr5kRing in the New Year with our annual Predictions and Resolutions 5K.  The good get to sleep in.  The race does not begin until 12 PM on the Washington-Lee High School parking deck.  For the full details on this race go here.  And of course a race announcement just would not be the same without a call for volunteers to help us put this race on. Please click here to volunteer.


Al Lewis 10-Miler and 5-Miler

After the Gar Williams Half Marathon on Sunday, December 16th we will have a couple of weeks off from Snowball Series races.  But be sure to run our ever popular Predictions and Resolutions 5K on New Years Day.  The Snowball Series will resume on January 12th with the Al Lewis 10-Miler and 5-Miler.  New this year is the location.  This years race will be held on the totally flat Haines Point.  It will be a double out and back format.  The race will start just inside the gate, run around Haines Point to the other gate and back again.  10-Milers will do this twice.  Also new this year, we will be offering a 5-Miler option that will start 15 minutes later.  The 10-Miler will still be used for Snowball Series scoring.  It has not yet been determined which gate that will serve as the start/finish line.  We will have a discussion with the NPS about parking this week and decide after that meeting.  The course IS NOT yet certified but the old course was not certified either.  If we return to Haines Point in future years we will certify this course.  Registration for the race can be found here.
