2019 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 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 a couple of weeks preceeding the program kickoff. We'll be doing a few 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. Our first Jump Start run will be on Saturday, 08-June (8 miles) with another on Saturday, 15-June (9 miles).

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:
  • Seminars by professionals in physical therapy, diet and more!
  • Social opportunities throughout training
  • Motivation and camaraderie found only with a training group

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

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