My Bridge. Your Race. My Face.

You run over my bridge every fall. The race is named after me, so why am I not the face of this race? Well that’s about to change. Woody Wilson is now the face of the one of the best half marathons in the US. Check out the new logo!

Not a Runner? Volunteer!

Putting on a premier distance event takes many people of many talents. Along with the year-long planning process, there are many opportunities to be a part of this great event on race weekend. Volunteer assignments include but are not limited to Packet Stuffing, Packet Pick up, Greeters, Bag Check, Bag Claim, Beer Servers, Finisher Medal Distribution, and many more. Checkout these fun opportunities in National Harbor, Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia at the “Volunteer Opportunities” link below.

Organize your community, corporate, or student group to man a waterstop or one of 13 mile markers, assemble race packets, support the Race Expo Event, or a medical aid station. Show your organization’s excitement and vie for the “Best Spirit” competition.

We are committed to having the safest race possible. To that end, we invite medical professionals to volunteer their expertise to support the half marathon. You must have one or more of the following medical credentials: MD, PA, RN, PT, ATC, NP, DPM, DO, EMT, paramedic or military corpsman. If you are certified and would like to be a medical volunteer, contact Steve Nearman.

The Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon & 6K events offer scenic routes along the George Washington Memorial Parkway and stunning views across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. The half marathon also treats runners to an out and back tour through the heart of historic Old Town, Alexandria.

Post Race Party

Did somebody say beer garden? Live rockin tunes? After-race food and drinks? All that and more at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon & 6K Finish Line Festival. Food and beverages will be provided at the finish area for runners.

VIP Pass

Run like a President! VIP ride, bag drop, and fresh post-race breakfast. VIPs also receive a special Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon & 6K gift.
