Volunteer Support: DC Road Runners Annual Picnic and 3-Mile Cross Country Race

Coach Kiprunning was happy to offer race support for yesterday's DC Road Runners Picnic and 3-mile cross country race.

This event is held annually on the grounds of Bethesda's Landon School.  The course is a cross country course in the truest sense: the terrain is varied, and the hills are plentiful and arrive intermittently throughout the race.

Daniel Ritter claimed first place with a time of 17:52.  Liz Ozeki was the first female finisher, crossing the line in 20:38.

Afterward, attendees enjoyed plentiful food and plentiful dessert.  It was a great night for the event, and we were happy to support it.

Next week, we will also be providing support for the National Capital 20-Miler.  We hope to see you there.

Congratulations to Eliud Kipchoge, New Marathon World Record Holder

Eliud Kipchoge set a new world record for the marathon today in Berlin.  Kipchoge finished in 2:01:39.
This record was over one minute faster than the previous world record.
An amazing accomplishment, no doubt.

Announcement: 2018 National Capital 20-Miler

Once again, Coach Kiprunning is proud to publicize (and to offer race support for) the National Capital 20-Miler, organized by DC Road Runners.

Both races begin at Carderock Recreation Area, running southeast toward DC on the C&O Towpath.  The 20-miler actually makes it all the way to Georgetown before making a return loop back out to Carderock.

Both events will be held on September 30, 2018, and they are perfectly timed to be tune-up races (or training runs) for any number of fall races.

Registration is available on the DC Road Runners website.  We hope to see you there.

In the meantime, feel free to peruse our photo album from last year's events.
