Pretty sure the marine corps marathon is NOVA based even though it meanders through DC - surely someone thought of that?

A marathon ties up streets for 8-10 hours, especially when the course is a double loop on the same streets. How many of these kind of events tie up the streets of south Reston every year? Some of us actually like to get to church, kid's sports, groceries or work on Sunday. Why aren't these events ever held in north Reston where the organizers live?

The officials were touting this as Nova's first marathon. But technically yes, correct, about MCM. Perhaps they mean Fairfax County when they say Northern Virginia?

This is great news. Now I have no excuse NOT to train for a marathon -- it's right in my backyard! Great publicity for Reston & our healthy & physically active residents!

The roads will be closed to runners by 1:30pm (doing the math from the web site: 7:30am + 6 hours). And, if they run this race like other foot races in south Reston, the roads will generally not be completely closed

There was a road race in South Reston this Sunday morning. I understand it was run by a for profit organization. There's one going on almost 2x per month. Enough already.
