2021 Spring Marathon Training Program

 Registration is closed for this event

The Spring Marathon Training Program has a planned virtual kickoff on Saturday, December 5th.  The program will last approximately 16 weeks and remain in a virtual format through at least part of January.  We will continually evaluate local public health guidance and modify the training program as needed.  While the training program normally meets for Saturday Long Run at North Meade Street Park in Rossyln, please disregard until we re-enter an in-person training phase.

Note that the United Airlines Rock 'N' Roll race series is planned for March 27, 2021, but will only include a half-marathon.  We are in the process of gathering data from Club members to identify the most likely spring marathon race candidates and will aim to tailor our spring training schedule to the maximum extent practicable.

DC Road Runners Club Spring Marathon Training Program is your opportunity to successfully prepare for a late-March (give or take) spring marathon of your choice.

The training program starts with a 10-mile long run.  The mileage plan will be distributed prior to the program kickoff.

The marathon training program is $35 for current DCRRC members.  You must also select and register for a 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!

**Registration is open to those participants 18 years of age and older as of the start of the program.**

What's included in the training program?

  • Coaching for your pace and fitness level
  • DCRRC training t-shirts and opportunities for other club swag
  • Weekly informational updates and training plans
  • Weekly training runs (when / if not in a virtual format):
  • Seminars by professionals in physical therapy, diet and more!
  • Social opportunities throughout training
  • Motivation and camaraderie found only with a training group

As a general rule, the club runs rain / snow / shine.  During the winter months, running start times and routes may be modified to accommodate conditions if we are running in-person.

If you have not run a marathon, it is strongly recommended that you consult your physician prior to entering this program.
