Registration

Register: You will need your club coupon code to successfully complete the registration process

There is no walk-up registration.  There is no race day registration.  Once registration closes online [13 Feb], that’s it.  This cutoff is required in order to allow each club to perform a final review and validation of their runner’s roster, and provide time for reach-out ahead of the scoring team preparing systems and bibs for race morning PPU.

Registration Fee: $40 (Please note that many clubs partially subsidize their runners for this event. Race is limited to first 1000 runners and routinely sells out prior to race day. )

All registrants must be a member of an RRCA running club from Maryland or Washington, D.C.

To register and run this event, the following three criteria must be met:

  1. Valid and active membership in a MD or DC RRCA club at the time of registration
  2. Valid and active membership in a MD or DC RRCA club on race morning
  3. Be able to complete the 10 miles within the stated 2h10m cutoff time
