2020 Fall Ten-Mile and Half-Marathon Training Program

 Registration is closed for this event

In March 2020, the DC Road Runners Club (DCRRC) suspended all activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which inlcuded our training programs.  Pending guidance from local, state, and federal authorities, we are planning to conduct our fall training programs, beginning with opening registration on June 15, 2020.  To ensure safe operations, the first several weeks of training will be conducted virtually with an in-person kickoff planned for Saturday, July 11, 2020.  Additional details are included below with more information available to those who register.

DCRRC will continue to monitor the local public health situation closely and make any adjustments necessary to protect our communities, members, partners, trainees, and volunteers.

This program is designed for runners training for the Army Ten-Miler, to be held on Sunday, October 11, 2020.  Training plans will also be available for athletes running half-marathons in the fall.  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 coaching, includes Saturday morning group training runs as well as other Club training events throughout the week (e.g., speed work on local tracks).  Throughout the program there will be seminars provided by professionals in physical therapy, nutrition and more!  The 14-week program beings with a virtual start on Saturday, June 27, 2020.  The first in-person meeting is planned for July 11, 2020 at Francis Scott Key Memorial, which is across M ST NW from the Georgetown Running Company at the corner of 34th ST NW.  More details will be provided in advance of this meeting.

We highly recommended that athletes should be running 9+ miles per week with a long run of at least 3 miles at the beginning of the training program.

The Training Program includes (as permitted by local regulations):

  • Weekly Saturday morning long runs and access to track workouts
  • Weekly virtual coaching session via Google Meet or Zoom
  • Weekly email tips and coaching emails
  • Private Facebook group to share FAQs, coordinate runs, etc.
  • Overall training schedule
  • Social events
  • Special appearances, lectures, and giveaways

Membership in the DC Road Runners Club (DCRCC) is required to participate in the program -- sign up here.  The 10-mile/half-marathon training program is $25 for current DCRRC members.  You must also select and register for a 10-miler or 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!
