2018 Fall Marathon Training Program

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 18-week training program starts on Saturday, June 23 at North Meade Street Park, a small park northwest of the USMC War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) in Rosslyn at 6:45 a.m.

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

There is a Jump Start program if you need a head start on training, so please come on out as you choose to our FREE Jump Start program that meets at 6:45 a.m. The group meets every Saturday from May 19 until the start of the program at the same place as the Fall Marathon Training Program.

The program is FREE for current DCRRC members, however you must register for the Marathon Training program and volunteer at two DCRRC events. You will also need to select and register for a marathon on your own (no guaranteed or free entries are provided by DCRRC).

Please note that the Saturday morning runs may move to a 5:45am start time in July and August due to weather.
