Summer 2016 Registration is OPEN

ARRC Summer Season Registration is Now Open!

St. Paddy’s Day is over, but you can still save some green and celebrate!

Spring starts this week and it’s time to think about Fall races… are you looking for a friendly, supportive running group to train for a full/half marathon, triathlon, or are you trying to stay fit in general? Arlington Road Runners Club offers a gradual 6-month training program to help you achieve your goals, meeting in Rosslyn for increasingly longer group runs every Saturday morning. Though the program is scheduled to end with the Marine Corps Marathon in October, our members train for races all around the country and overseas, so we can work with you to adjust your mileage for your target race.

ARRC offers:

  • A full 26-week training schedule with pre-run stretching & warmups
  • Mid-week track workouts and extra miles scheduled for those interested in extra training/longer distances
  • Planned routes along both sides of the Potomac, around the National Mall and into Rock Creek, Old Town, Falls Church, and Bethesda – beautiful sunrises and wildlife seen regularly!
  • Volunteer-run homebase and waterstops (for runs over 10 miles)
  • Experienced mentors, and a variety of pace groups to fit your speed Invitation-only Facebook discussion page
  • Regular information about hydration, nutrition, running gear, avoiding injuries, and race preparation, among other topics of interest
  • Weekly newsletters with detailed trail maps, race photos, and more
  • Mid-season and end-of-season “survivor” parties … and a fun group of people from ALL walks of life – all ages, sizes, speeds, and levels of experience!

Make your goals a reality!  Register through Active.com (https://endurancecui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=34608253&e4q=30b748f7-1c07-43d5-9385-d0b97ba6c3b3&e4p=cce96a49-9f99-4fb4-99c0-0099989a621e&e4ts=1458210429&e4c=active&e4e=snawe00000000&e4rt=Safetynet&e4h=a05119b379987a3dcc86dbab824da11f)

Orientation Day is April 30th – we’ll meet at 7AM in Gateway Park at the base of the Key Bridge for a 3-miler to determine pace groups.

Summer runs are at 7am through May, 6am from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and after Labor Day they return to 7am!

We look forward to having you join us on the trails! **************************************************************************** Congrats to all of you who Sham-rocked this past weekend.

Shannon H.

I’ve been running off and on since high school and I’ve been running with ARRC for 2 years. I keep with it because I think races are a lot of fun (and come with medals!) and I’ve met some great people through running.

Fall/Winter 2011

Our full (weekly) schedule is available to registered ARRC members through our weekly newsletter, Train of Thought.  If you are registered and are not receiving the newsletter, please check your spam filter or email info@train4dc.com.  Start times are 7:30 AM.  Extra mileage routes and times will be posted in the ARRC-ExtraMileage Yahoo group.

Training for a full marathon?

Rod is leading extra mileage runs before/after the regular Saturday runs for those training for a full marathon.  While officially, ARRC offers only half marathon and fitness programs during the winter, these runs are an option to experienced marathoners who are interested in running a marathon in the spring or who simply want to do more mileage on Saturdays. There will be an added note/mileage on to the weekly maps.  Please join the ARRC-ExtraMileage Yahoo group if you are interested in participating in these extra runs.  XM runners are expected to carry their own car keys if they cannot return to homebase in the alotted time.
