2020 Fall Marathon Training Program

 Registration is closed for this event

The DC Road Runners Club (DCRRC) has suspended all activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which inlcudes our training programs.  Pending guidance from local, state, and federal authorities, we are currently planning to conduct our fall training programs; registration opens on 01-May-2020, though is subject to change.  DCRRC will continue to monitor the situation closely and make any adjustments necessary to protect our communities, members, partners, trainees, and volunteers.

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 on June 20th, 2020 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 an introduction to the program.

Membership in the DC Road Runners Club (DCRCC) is required to participate in the program -- sign up here.  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.**
