Is everyone ready for tomorrow? The streets will be closed and driving anywhere is virtually impossible.

Plan accordingly.  

D.C. to close some streets when Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon hits the city on March 9

By Luz Lazo

The annual Rock 'n’ Roll Marathon will bring more than 17,000 runners and thousands more spectators to the nation’s capital Saturday, closing streets and disrupting traffic, parking and transit across the District.
The marathon, which will occur between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m., will take runners through many D.C. neighborhoods. Some of the street closures will begin as early as 2 a.m., and residents and visitors should anticipate parking challenges starting the night before as D.C. police implement strict “no parking” restrictions along the route.
The good news is the forecast for Saturday is calling for partly sunny and dry weather. The Capital Weather Gang is forecasting highs in the mid-40s to near 50.
The marathon will start at 7 a.m. from a line on Constitution Avenue NW at 14th Street and will finish midafternoon at RFK Stadium. The course sprawls across several residential neighborhoods, including Capitol Hill, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and Anacostia.
