Event Registration

Please give us all pertinent information to register you for the race. If you're a DC Road Runners Club member, please log on to the site, and most of the information will fill in automatically.

To transfer a registration from another runner, please use the appropriate box. The other runner (who will NOT be running) must send an email to the Race Director saying that he or she is transferring the registration to you.  There are no refunds (the two runners can work out the fees between them).

If you meet the requirements for complimentary elite registration (sub-2:35 for men, sub-3:00 for women in a competitively-timed non-virtual race), don't use this registration form; email the race director with proof of your qualifying time.
