Eisenhower. The USPTO Eisenhower entrance is ½ block from the start/finish. Alternatively, you can exit the parking garage on the 3rd

park there you may be towed! Please don’t ruin your day when more convenient FREE parking is available.
Race Day Information
• Runners should arrive at the starting line area one hour before the start of their race to ensure sufficient time to use the
restroom and arrive at the starting line. Restrooms are available both in the USPTO atrium and porta-johns will be available
near the start/finish.
• A coffee & juice bar (patrons must pay on their own) will be open in the USPTO atrium for runners and spectators starting at
6:00 AM for purchase of items.
• The Alexandria Police have asked for us to STAY OFF the grass median that separates the north and south lanes of
Eisenhower Ave. All Eisenhower traffic will be diverted to those lanes and being in the median is not safe. Please be safe!
• Please wear your bib number visibly and firmly on the front of your shirt. Do not remove the tear-off tag until after the race.
Aid Stations
We offer aid stations with water and Gatorade® Endurance at the start/finish and at each aid station. MCC’s charity partners staff the
aid stations to personally THANK our runners.
