Good afternoon.  I worked in previous years with the past NCMS Director and wanted to connect with you regarding plans for the 6th Annual National Marathon, Half Marathon and Team Relay scheduled to run Saturday, March 26, 2011.  This race is DC`s  only Marathon and is run entirely in DC.  The 26.2 mile course runs through 6 of our city`s 8 wards.. Specifically, the course (at mile 9) will bring 15,000 runners down North Capitol Street (southbound side only) from Bryant Street, NW to K Street, NE.  The street closure time is 7:25am – 9:25am.  We have a water station at Bryant Street NW and a Community Motivation Station at R Street, NW.   I have attached the course map and street closure table for you review.  The economic impact study of the 2010 race showed $1.1 million dollars of direct spending into DC`s General Fund.   We hope, with an expanded field of runners, that impact will be even higher in 2011. 

I would be happy to speak by phone if you have any questions or concerns. You can also find event details @

Thank you!
