marine marathon and camping

I will be attending my first marathon on oct 26th.  My intention is to backpack camp at greenbelt campground.  (This is a low budget opperation)  Is there anyone else doing this and does anyone know the trail from campground to metro.

    These look like the two closest stations. The map I looked at didn't have a distance scale but they didn't look too far away. Check a good map to get the distance and route.  I imagine the campground would have directions too.

    I think you'll have to cross 495.  It's not the easiest task to get to the subway on foot.  I'm sure you can find a ride.  I may be passing by the area though I will likely spend the night w/friends or cousins in NoVA.
