Winter/Spring Distance Training Program

OVERVIEW

Has a marathon, half marathon, ten miler or other distance event been on your "life list" of things you must do?  Have you completed a long distance race before and gotten the bug?  Do you seek a new challenge for your current stage in life?  Completing an endurance event can be a life-changing experience.  Doing it with others sharing that common goal can make the experience even more powerful.  And doing it with the support and guidance of an experienced coach makes it much more realistic and manageable.

4 UPCOMING SESSIONS

There are three available training sites for the Winter/Spring Distance Training Program:  Burke, DC/Georgetown, and Reston.  The Cherry Blossom/Spring Mid-Distance Program will meet in Arlington, Ashburn, DC and Reston as well, offering additional group run opportunities should participants have a conflict with the scheduled DTP run.   New for 2016-2017, we are offering a RUN-WALK specific training group. While all locations include trainees who use the run/walk method, we’ll begin a specific sub-group in RESTON exclusively using this approach.
