2021 Spring Ten Miler Training Program

The Spring Ten Miler Training Program has a planned virtual kickoff on Saturday, January 2nd.  The program will last approximately 14 weeks and target the Cherry Blossom 10-mile race on Sunday, April 11th.  Assuming that you're already running consistently week-to-week, with some modifications to the mileage progression, this traning program can also be used if you're planning to the run the United Airlines Rock 'N' Roll half marathon planned for March 27, 2021.

While we're starting virtually, we will continually evaluate local public health guidance and modify the training program as needed.  The instructions below assume in-person training, so please be aware when reviewing.

The DCRR Spring Half-Marathon Training Program is designed for those racing the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler, and we welcome athletes running other spring marathons as well. The program is open to any healthy adult at virtually any level of athletic ability. There is no speed requirement and all paces are welcome. The training program, with expert coaching, includes Saturday morning group training runs and mid-week speed workouts. The 14-week program starts on January 2, 2021 at Georgetown Running Company.

In order to get the most from your training program, we strongly encourage that at the start of the program your weekly running mileage be at least 9 miles with a long run of 3 miles.

The Training Program includes:

  • Weekly group Saturday morning long runs
  • Overall training schedule
  • Weekly track sessions
  • Several social events
  • Weekly email tips
  • Special appearances, lectures and giveaways

Membership in DC Road Runners is required to participate in the program.  The half-marathon training program is $25 for current DCRRC members. You must also select and register for a half-marathon on your own (no guaranteed or free entries are provided by DCRRC). Training program members are also encouraged to participate in / volunteer at the club's many free races and events, which are included in your membership fee. We are all part of the DMV's running community and it's up to us to keep it inclusive and vibrant!
