People's Marathon - October 30th. Let's do this.
They changed the course this year (cursory look shows a longer section west of the Potomac and shorter section east of the Potomac, cutting out the second biggest hill in the process) and opened the start a little longer due to metro not opening until 7AM this year. There is a little more headache than usual, so if people want to coordinate travel efforts, please note it in the comments.
I find the website rather annoying to navigate, so I'll post some pertinent info here.
Expo is at Gaylord National Resort (201 Waterfront Street) at National Harbor.
Friday, October 28 - 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, October 29 - 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
For transportation to the Expo, free roundtrip shuttles will run from Eisenhower (Yellow), Branch Avenue (Green) and Van Dorn (Blue) Metro stations to the Gaylord National Resort from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. on Friday and 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on Saturday. Bring your eCard from the registration page.
Race begins at 7:55AM.
Runner's Village is in the Pentagon North Parking Lot. Shuttles to the village run from Crystal City, National Harbor, and Ronald Reagon Building or Ballston. Metro to Pentagon (Blue/Yellow) is available, but metro does not run until 7AM that morning. To make accommodations for the late metro open, the start will remain open until 8:55AM.
Self corralling for MCM, so get there early if you want to be corralled correctly. Pace teams are available 3:05, 3:15, 3:25, 3:35, 3:45, 4:00, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, 5:00, and 5:30.
