    Where are the go-to places to get steep hill run training in the DMV?

    Oooh!

    • Capitol Hill (basically run around the Capitol)
    • Meridian Park (run around the park and add some stair workouts by running thru the park too)
    • Calvert Hill (run up and down Rock Creek trail to Calvert Street NW)
    • Massachusetts Ave – more long rather than steep (from Dupont Circle, run up and down Mass and admire all the embassies)
    • Porter, Tilden and Wilson Blvd are also killer hills but they’re more boring than the options above.

    And the Wednesday Track Workout does hills once a month.

    Fort Scott Drive just south of Crystal City. Nice big hill to run up to Fort Scott Park!
