Established in 2006, the group reaches thousands of runners in 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. We do not skimp when it comes to benefits for our members. We offer discounts with many local and national running related companies, nutritional products, fitness studios, races. We provide our members with opportunities to win free race entries each month. But the greatest benefit received by our members is meeting other people who share your passion and energy for running, walking or other exercise activities, which usually leads to life-long friendships. You also join a team of runners who give back to the community (volunteering) and support national charities through fundraising events provided by the club.
You do not have to be a member to join us for a run, all are welcome. However, there are a lot more benefits to being a member!
