IMPORTANT UPDATE: Wednesday Night Track for April 2017

Club Members and Guests -- 

This is revised news about track availability for the remainder of April 2017. 

We've been informed that while individuals can use the Yorktown HS track during scheduled soccer games, no "organized groups" are allowed.  Thus, while you are welcome to run at the Yorktown track on Wednesday night, we will NOT have an organized DCRRC workout at Yorktown on either April 19 or April 26.  

Although the Washington-Lee track is not available at all, we will have an organized workout, using the Custis Trail, on both the 19th and the 26th.  We will do mile repeats on the trail (heading west, and also using a portion of the W&OD Trail) on the 19th, and "3 on/2 off" intervals on the 26th.  Details on the Wednesday night track page.
