DC Capital Striders (DCCS) works to bring together runners of all abilities. We organize weekly non-competitive group runs and social events; volunteer at local races, host fitness/educational seminars on various running related topics, and organize races/other events for various charities. Established in 2006, the club has members across the District, Virginia, and Maryland.

We strive to provide our runners with an opportunity to meet others to train with; encourage runners to give back to the running community, and provide an atmosphere where every runner is accepted in a non-threatening, non-competitive atmosphere.

DCCS Goes the Extra Mile!  Join us!!

When running one of the DC Capital Striders weekly runs or any DC Capital Striders event, I agree, warrant and covenant as follows: I know that running is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter or run in weekly or competitive runs unless I am medically able and properly trained. I assume all risks associated with running including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of weather, including high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. Having read this knowing these facts, I, for myself, waive and release DC Capital Striders Running Group from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation.
