Track Championships

Join us on Saturday, July 13th for the annual DCRRC Track Championship. We'll have distances of one-mile, 800-meters, and also a 3000-meter Steeplechase. We'll have heats for all paces, so come and test your speed.

This year's track meet will also feature nationally-ranked invited runners. It is sponsored by the Atlanta Track Club and is the final qualifying event before the USATF Nationals track meet. We think it's important to have a Nationals-qualifying event here in the Nation's capital.

The Track Championship is open to all runners. There's no cost to participate. Click here for complete information and to register. Participation in the elite heats is by invitation; if you believe you qualify (mile time of 4:00 for men, 4:35 for women; 800M time of 1:45 for men, 2:00 for women) please email Brian Danza for details.

The meet will be at the Dunbar High School track, about a quarter-mile from either the NoMa/Gallaudet (Red line) or Mt. Vernon Square/Convention Center (Green & Yellow lines) Metro stations.

We need volunteers to help at the Track Meet; click here to sign up. Attention, Bunion Derby competitors: this is the only event that you can both run and get volunteer credit for!
