MCM Tent

CALLING ALL DCRRC MEMBERS, MCM RUNNERS AND THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

mcm1

We are partnering again this year with the Hope for Warriors, our sponsor for Charity Village! Hope for Warriors provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and military families that are focused on transition, health and wellness, peer engagement, and connections to community resources.

CHARITY VILLAGE: Charity Village is located on the Iwo Jima grounds at the finish line. The tent will be open and manned from 4:30 am until 5:00 p.m. on race day. Access to Charity Village is near the entrance to Fort Meyer – Wright Gate at the intersection of N Marshall Drive and N Meade Street. Hope for Warriors will have a large tent conveniently located near the sidewalk that runs in front of the Netherlands Carillon. Look for their logo/sign on the tent, as we won’t have a DCRRC sign.

CHARITY VILLAGE MEETING AREA: Family, friends and runners are welcome before and after the race and can meet up at the tent. Hope for Warriors will have lots of bins for baggage drop off, food and beverages before and after, chairs, tables, massage therapists (remember to thank them for their volunteer massage with a tip)! Breakfast and lunch will be available throughout the day – and Pizza comes at 11:00!

Plan on meeting up before to see everyone and link up after! Lots of porta potties, no line, and clean amenities!

We needs lots of volunteers to help put on a race this size! If you're not running, please join our team and help with the many tasks that make this race fun, fast and friendly.

All come with a hearty "thank you," a Turkey Trot T-shirt, and pre-expended calories so that you can overindulge in your Thanksgiving feast without guilt!
