New Course. New Distance.

No gravel, more Old Town. We’ve heard your feedback, and there’s now no gravel on the 2014 Half Marathon Course. It’s flatter and faster. And for those of us not quite ready for a 13.1 distance, we’re proud to announce our new 6K course. Download the course map to see the new courses!

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

With our race course from Mt. Vernon Estates to National Harbor, MD, the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon is one of the most scenic courses you can run in the DC Metro area. And as our name suggests, you’ll run across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.

Post Race Party

Did somebody say beer garden? Live rockin tunes? After-race food and drinks? All that and more at the WWBH Finish Line Festival. Food and beverages will be provided at the finish area for runners.

VIP Awakening Pass

Run like a Rock Star! Heated drive to the start area. Gear transfer to the VIP Awakening tent. Exclusive food from one of our local restaurant sponsors. And a special, gift, just for the VIPs!

Kid's Race

Bring your kids to join in on the fun before the marathon. The kids race will be held the same day as the Woodrow Wilson Half Marathon, starting at 7:00am, beginning at National Harbor on an out-and-back course. The course is 1.31 miles and participants receive a t-shirt, race number and refreshments. It is an untimed fun run.

Adults are welcome to register and run with the kids.
