Before the Run

MCM participants and their supporters will attend the Health & Fitness Expo at the new MCM headquarters hotel, the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, at National Harbor, a vibrant, unique community with a wide variety of attractions. Rising from the banks of the Potomac River, just south of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in Prince George's County, Md., National Harbor is a short distance from Old Town, Alexandria and the nation's capital.

The 350-acre mixed-use development features tree-lined streets with more than 150 shops Tanger Outlets, more than 30 restaurants, and iconic attractions such as the Capital Wheel . With so much to see and do, National Harbor becomes a prime destination before or after the Expo and throughout MCM Weekend.
