INDIANAPOLIS -- Registration is now available for the 2015 .US National 12K, set for Sunday, November 15 in Alexandria, Virginia.

Welcoming runners of all ages and abilities, the 2015 .US National 12K features an elite championship race, a Masters Championship race and a community race all at the 12-kilometer (km) distance in addition to a 1-mile race and a kids’ fun run.

Finishers and their families are welcome to enjoy a family and dog-friendly post-race expo at Oronoco Bay Park. The awards stage features entertainment and a relaxing atmosphere with a chance to rub elbows with fellow fitness buffs as well as elite athletes.

 

The elite 12K race offers $100,000 in prize money as the season-capping event to the USATF Running Circuit, a series of races that annually provides nearly $1 million in total prize money to American runners.
