Metro will open at its regular time on Sunday at 7 a.m. However, because of Metro track work, riders using the system should allow for extra time, and runners in earlier wave starts should plan for alternate transportation. The Vienna and Dunn Loring station will be closed.

For spectators, the race organizer suggests going to the east side of Memorial Bridge, The Kennedy Center, the Pentagon, 14th Street and Independence Avenue and around mile 9 at Army Navy Drive.
