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!

Ragnar Triple Peak Challenge - Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - 6 pm - Come join us in the Difficult Run Parking Lot, Great Falls, VA - 8801 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA 22102
During the week of October 1st, runners all over the country will team up to accomplish something we could never do alone - run enough hills to collectively climb three majestic mountain peaks! Every time we (virtually) summit Rainier, Denali, and K2, our friends at Ragnar will donate to NEUROWORX to help people with spinal-cord injuries. As an added bonus, our club will be competing along with other clubs across the country to see which of two big national teams can climb the highest! We are on team BLUE, and are paired up with more than 60 other #TeamBlue clubs from across the country! Will you rise to the elevation and help us beat #TeamRed? Enter promo code“BLUE” when you register for the run club competition during the Ragnar Triple Peaks Challenge!
