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.

Location and Directions: Start line will be at Langley High School (6520 Georgetown Pike).  Take George Washington Parkway to Chain Bridge Road/Dolly Madison Blvd toward McLean, Rt-123 South.  After 0.9 mile, turn right onto Georgetown Pike.  (Don't turn early, or you'll visit the CIA, which can neither confirm nor deny anything about a race.)  After 0.15 mile, turn right onto Colonial Farm Road, at the intersection with the "FHWA Turner Fairbank Highway Research Center | Claude Moore Colonial Farm" sign.  

Distance and Course Description: 8K. The course will start at Langley High School. The course will be run on the bike path and will follow a similar path as previous years (excluding the Langley HS portions). Click here for the course map. Out on the bikepath towards the Beltway. Right on Mackall Avenue, and do the course as before, until you get to Benjamin and Lawton.  Then go STRAIGHT on Benjamin to Balls Hill Road, turn right, take right on Arbor Lane, left on Lawton, and River Oaks Drive. Turn-around point is on River Oaks Drive, right on Lawton, left on Benjamin, and the remainder is the same returning as it was going out.  Best described as an "out and back-ish with a loop in the middle" course.  

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

Awards:  Prizes will be given out to the top 3 overall men and women.  Also, 1st place Masters man and woman.  

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.
