• Welcome runners!

Welcome to the 2018 Race for Seminarians Team!

Thanks to all who came to our Team Rally and Picnic on September 11. Ray Pugsley gave us some very helpful tips for our training and race day preparations, and one of our runners shared some fundraising ideas from her experience (including finding a sponsor to match her donations!). 

See our race page to pick a few, register, and start training and fundraising

For those of you doing the Marine Corps Marathon or 10K on October 28, here is a map and other information about our events surrounding that day. We are hoping to have a cheer squad in Crystal City, so send your fans there to join them.

Being a part of the Race for Seminarians Team includes:

  • Networking events to meet other runners and find training partners
  • Training tips from Ray Pugsley, Owner of Potomac River Runners
  • Gait analysis, shoe fitting and discounts for athletic ware
  • Training program and schedule
  • Creative fundraising materials and suggestions
  • Team T-shirt
  • Post-race brunch
  • And more!

We are grateful for your prayers and sweat and sacrifices, and the Office of Vocations is available to support you in any way we can.

In case you missed them, here are some great photos from our 2017 races.
