DC Half and Half Marathon Race Description
Most runs have water stations and bananas on hand for refueling. The DC Half and Half Marathon challenges you to down a half smoke with chips at the midway point.
We are back in person for 2021! We will meet at the Ben's Chili Bowl location in Arlington (1725 Wilson Blvd). We will run the first leg along the Mt. Vernon Trail along the Potomac River, return to Ben's Chili Bowl to eat a half smoke and then run the second half of the run along the Custis Trail and finally return to the starting line. The run takes place on shared running trails and requires crossing streets that have not been closed to traffic. As we open registration at this time, the Ben's Chili location in Arlington is currently closed. If it is still closed in November, we will still host our run there by bringing in food from other Ben's locations.
If CDC guidance hinders our ability to host an in-person run in November, we will pivot to a virtual run and send you a voucher for a half smoke at specified Ben's Chili Bowl locations as well as a t-shirt.
Your registration (and possible additional donation) supports ScholarCHIPS which mentors and awards scholarships to college-bound students with an incarcerated parent. Since all proceeds are donated to this worthy cause, we do not offer refunds. Thank you for your support!
