15th St. NW between Constitution Ave. NW and Madison Dr. NW at the Washington Monument
2 15th St NW, Washington, DC 20560, USA
This course will take runners past several of the city’s signature sights, including the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall and many more sites.
Both events follow out-and-back courses that start and finish in the shadow of the Washington Monument, at 15th Street, between Constitution Avenue and Madison Drive.
From there, the race winds first around the northern end of the Tidal Basin and then along East Potomac Park, and then a 3 1/2-mile-long stretch along the Potomac River.
That’s followed by a long stretch along the Rock Creek & Potomac Parkway, past the Watergate Hotel and Roosevelt Island, through Georgetown all the way up to where the parkway splits with Beach Drive. Once runners make the turn to head back in the opposite direction, they follow the parkway south all the way back to the Lincoln Memorial.
There, runners will cross the Arlington Memorial Bridge for a quick out-and-back stretch, and then head east along Independence Avenue.
Once they’ve made it past the Tidal Basin across from the Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt memorials, runners will turn left to get back onto 15th Street and then cross the finish line back where they started, in front of the Washington Monument.
