This is a great course through DC, and the Rock n’ Roll Marathon Series races are always big and lots of fun. Rock ‘n’ Roll has made some great updates to the events this year including new mile markers and aid station signs, as well as some spectator-friendly changes to the Finish Line like big screens showing participants finishing the race.
