DC Road Runners Club Fall Marathon Training Program is your opportunity to successfully prepare for the Marine Corps Marathon or any fall marathon of your choice. The training program starts in June at North Meade Street Park, a small park northwest of the USMC War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) in Rosslyn at 6:45 am.

On that Saturday, come prepared to run ten miles following a short introductory overview of the program.

If you are not up to running ten miles yet, please join us at SLR in the weeks preceeding the program kickoff. We'll be do a series of shorter, very informal, Jump Start runs so that you can begin the program with a reasonable mileage base. These Jump Start runs are designed to used in combination with regular mid-week runs on your own. Jump Start runs will meet (6:45 am) and kickoff (7:00 am) at the same time as SLR. More details will be coming soon.

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!

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
