Every year, more than 4,000 runners come out to participate in the Capitol Hill Classic, a fundraiser to support the Capitol Hill Cluster Schools. Until this year, however, official training programs were run only out of Georgetown. Thanks to our newest fitness apparel store, Summit to Soul, anyone looking to improve their distance or speed can run with a group right in the neighborhood!
The group will be coached by Capitol Hill’s own Kathy Pugh (also of EZ8DC) and is welcome to runners of all paces & abilities. This is a great family event and kids over the age of 10 are encourage to join. Group training runs will leave the store every Saturday at 9:00am. The program will also offer a running schedule for participants independent runs during the week. The training program is free to all current members of DC Road Runners. Anyone interested can learn more and join/sign-up here!
The training program runs from March 18th through May 21st. And as someone who has participated in DC Road Runners programs before, as well as EZ8DC, they really do mean ALL levels. No matter your pace, you will find a great group that will help you stay motivated for this awesome neighborhood race.
