RunWashington’s 2019 ranked races

With a new year comes a new slate of races for RunWashington’s runner rankings. We’ve shuffled some around, added some, shed a few others.

Each of these races is run on a certified course (but it’s up to you to make sure you don’t run too far). To be ranked for the year, runners must run at least six races, three before July 1 and three after. Why? It’s the most fair (and manageable) way to help put together a list of the runners who have made a commitment to road racing in the Washington, D.C. area.

There are at least 51 events in each half of the year, giving you plenty of opportunities to get in the races you need to be ranked. We’re still confirming a few dates for races. Keep in mind, races may be removed if they encounter course trouble, but we will try to replace them if something is removed.
