If you’ll be in town for the race, Team RWB has got you covered!

RACE DAY CHEER SQUAD

Navigating DC can be difficult as a spectator. We’ve put together some of the best cheer spots for Eagles and a list of what to bring:

  • Kennedy Center: Get a good look at the runners from this scenic location on Rock
  • Creek Parkway: Get there by taking the Blue or Orange Metro Lines to the Foggy Bottom Metro station. IF driving, remember to check the Race Day Road Restrictions under travel.
  • 14th & Independence: Gretchen will be hosting her Boot Camp Cheer Squad spreading her version of joy, laughter, and burpee motivation.
  • Independence Avenue: There are many locations along this street to get a good view of the race. Afterward, go the National Mall or a museum for a great afternoon.
  • Army Navy Drive/Before Mile 9: Runners at this point know they are nearing the finish line and are finding their second wind. Walk over to the South Lot of the Pentagon, hop on the Express Shuttle and go to the North Lot to enjoy the Post Race Festivities when you are finished spectating.
  • Finish Line: Hang out by the Team RWB HOOAH tent, and walk over to cheer on the runners as they finish!

Be sure to wear your favorite Eagle gear and bring: signs to cheer our racers on, water, sunscreen, snacks and noise makers (horns, cowbells)!
