Race Registration

I have been running this race (almost) since it started (I missed the inaugural, but have run each year since!). I’m always impressed with the professionalism, organization, and communication that is surrounded by this particular run, and your speedy direct response to me only serves to improve upon my impression. 

Thank you again,
– M.S.

2016 Race Announcement!

October 2, 2016 @ 7am

We have re-designed the course and will be staging our start and finish UNDER the Woodrow Wilson Bridge on the Old Town Alexandria side and utilizing much of the same GW Parkway, Woodrow Wilson Bridge pedestrian path and Washington Street in Old Town as we have in the past. This is a stellar fast course and will be a lot of fun to race and watch.

Stop by and see us at the Cherry Blossom 10Mile EXPO on April 1 & 2 at the National Building Museum.

Perfect! Thanks so much. I have been consistently impressed with the attention to detail you’ve shown. I know putting on a race is no easy task; you handled the shut down last year with patience and grace, and you have answered each email cheerfully and quickly. Thank you, and I can’t wait to get back to Virginia to run!

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.



Scenic Race Course

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 and through the heart of historic Old Town, Alexandria.

Post Race Party

Totally rockin tunes? After-race food and drinks, including micro-brews? 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.

Woody Wilson Kids Mini Half

The Woody Wilson Kids Mini Half is a 1.31 mile out and back fun run from National Harbor. Participants are joined by Woody Wilson and receive a short sleeve technical tee. Parents are welcome to register and run with kids, but not required. 7:00am start time.

You guys are seriously a class act.  You’re always prompt, efficient, and super friendly, and have impeccable customer service.  One of MANY reasons that the WBHM is my favorite race, ever.  :). Last year, we were so disappointed to not run, so I did 13.1 that day anyway, in my neighborhood, in the spirit of the race! Thanks again!  Can’t wait to run in October!

S.S.

Signed up now & look forward to a great race. Although I’ll be treating it as a training run in prep for my first marathon 3 weeks later with MCM with Running Brooke. Thanks for the opportunity! I know it will be a great event!

A.C.

Just to let you know, I had a great race this year at the WWBHM – set a PR – and, as part of my build up for next month’s Richmond Full, it was a much needed confidence booster in a really well run event.
