You must bring this confirmation with you to pick up your bib number either on Friday or Saturday at the Health and Fitness Expo at the National Building Museum. There is no packet pick-up on Sunday. In the meantime, please check the event website, for the latest news, including information about hotel reservations at our official race headquarters hotel, The Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel.

If you are registered in the 10 Mile and before race day you feel that you will not be able to complete the course in less than our cutoff time of 2 hours and 20 minutes (net time), you will have an opportunity to switch to the 5K Run-Walk. There will be strict enforcement of the cutoff time.

If you find that you cannot run the race, you may transfer your number during our official transfer period between February 1, 2014 and February 28, 2014. Details will be posted on the event website and included in a future email.

If you know of someone who did not sign up for the lottery or did not gain entry through the lottery you might suggest that they become an Official Online Fundraiser for our Official Event Charity, the Children’s Miracle Network. He or she will be assured a spot on the starting line and will feel good about helping children receive vital medical care. For details about becoming an Online Fundraiser, click here:

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
