Next Race Day: Sunday, February 20th, 2022 10:00 am — Race Canceled.

We regret to announce that we must cancel the 2022 George Washington’s Birthday Marathon and relay. One of the jurisdictions that must grant us a permit for the race denied our application, citing that “the community transmission level for COVID is high in Prince George’s County, Maryland.” Needless to say, we are disappointed in this outcome.

We will fully refund everyone’s entry fees.

We thank all those to signed up to run as well as the many Marathon supporters who volunteered for the event. We plan to return in 2023, COVID and other conditions permitting. For those who like the course through Greenbelt and Beltsville, please consider our Larry Noel 15K race on Labor Day Sunday, September 4th, 2022. Same start, same finish, a bit shorter in the middle and, we promise, no threat of snow, ice and hypothermia.

‘Til next year … .
