List of participants: check this list to see if you are registered.  Our email confirmations sometimes end up in your spam folder.  This list serves as alternate confirmation of your registration.

If you signed up for the race and can no longer run please email races@dcroadrunners.org to inform us of your cancelation.  There will be no refund for canceling but you will open up a spot for a fellow runner.

If you would like information about our club membership and the many benefits go to our membership page.

Refund Policy:  We have a strict no refund, no transfer and no deferral policy on all of our low key races.  However, in the event we are forced to cancel this race due to weather or other unforeseen events we will make every attempt to reschedule this race on another date.  In this event, your registration would automatically carry over to the new date.  If you are unable to run this new date or we are unable to find a new date for the race we will grant you free entry into another of our low key races in which room is available.

Volunteers: We always need additional help in putting on these races. Please sign up here, if you (or a family member who is accompanying you to the race) can assist.

Directions to the race: The race will be based from the Ken-Gar Palisades Park.  The address for the recreation center is 4140 Wexford Drive, Kensington, MD.  The address is a bit misleading since the entrance to the parking lot is off Beach Drive south of Wexford Drive.  From the Beltway, take Connecticut Avenue (MD 185) north ~1.5 miles to Knowles Avenue (MD 547).  Make a left onto Knowles and go ~0.6 mile to Beach Drive.  Go right onto Beach Drive and the entrance to the park parking lot will be on the right after ~.25 miles.  The parking lot is pretty small so unless you are one of the first ~30 people there you will need to find other parking nearby.  Nearby parking is available on Beach Drive, off of Wexford within the neighborhood there and continuing further up Beach Drive to the intersection with Garrett Park Road, make a right and the entrance to the parking lot for the small park there is on the left.

Timing:  This race is timed using the Chronotrack timing system.

Awards:  1st Male and Female - $20, 2nd Male and Female - $15, 3rd Male and Female - $10, 1st Male and Female Masters - $10, 1st Male and Female in Age Groups - $5 (0 - 9, 10 - 14, 15 - 19, 20 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50 - 59, 60 - 69, 70 +)

Stroller and Dog Policy:  This race is held on a fairly narrow public trail.  In addition to the many race participants this trail also remains open to the public for use by walkers, runners and bicyclers.  As such, dogs and strollers are prohibited on this particular course.

Headphone Policy:  The use of headphones is strongly discouraged at all DCRR Club races.

Distance and Course Description: The course is NOT certified. Here is a link to the course map: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6774625.  The entire course will be on a paved trail.  Assistance will be provided by police officers stopping vehicle traffic for the crossing of Knowles Avenue and Cedar Lane.  Other intersections will be marshaled by volunteers where we will have to yield to traffic - please be alert.  A waterstop will be located at the intersection of the trail and Old Springs Road (miles 4/6).  The miles will be marked either on the ground or by signs as well as the few turns.  Please familiarize yourself with the course map since we have had a run of snow the past two years which plays havoc with the markings and signs.
