"They (my coaches) don't make running intimidating, and they lead by example. I am so thankful that they have made me think of myself as a runner."
- Karen Smith



- Registration remains OPEN for our Winter/Spring Training Programs! Whether your goal is a spring marathon, half marathon or 10-miler, or you want to spend the winter getting started (with the help of a coach to keep you honest in the cold!) or building your speed and endurance, we've got a training track just right for you. Check out the Winter Training Program - Marathon TrackWinter Training Program - 1/2 Marathon/10-Miler Track, or the Winter Training Program - 5K/10K Track (replaces our Begin/Base/Build program and perfect for 101/201 runners!)

- Are you hoping to run the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run next April? Due to our special partnership with the race, if you weren't selected in the lottery, you can register to train with us in the Cherry Blossom/Spring Mid-Distance Training Program and guarantee a great training experience for you (and any of your running friends who choose to join you as well!) AND a race bib WHILE OUR BIB SUPPLIES LAST. If you already have a bib or would like to train with the group for other spring races, just join the Standard Program!

- Welcome to our new partner, MedStar, the largest healthcare provider in the D.C. Metro area. The new partnership will deliver even more value to training program participants.  MedStar staff will provide on-site medical consults and education at our weekly training runs.  They will also partner with us to share education with runners via monthly email digest. More to come!

- Individualized Training Programs through the Arlington-based PR Running Club or Online Training can start any time -- choose your event, select your goal, and contact us!  Late winter/early spring is a great time to get started.
