DCCS: Going the Extra Mile!
Welcome to the DC Capital Striders! We are a community of runners mainly in Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, and Maryland. Our members believe in running in a supportive, non-competitive environment; supporting the environment; raising money for national and local charities; and volunteering at community races.
Member benefits include access to weekly group runs all around the Washington DC region led by knowledgeable group hosts, discount codes on local races and running/fitness/nutrition/health related materials and products, free monthly member raffles, information on running events in the community and opportunity to meet and make new running buddies.
Take a look around, and we hope to see you out on one of our runs or at an upcoming event!
