Iwo Jima Memorial

Welcome! This is the home of the world-famous (well, maybe locally well-known) SLR.

Starting Saturday, September 6, our start time will be 8:00am. Every Saturday, we meet at a small park northwest of the USMC War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) in Rosslyn, the closest address for mapping purposes is 1300 Arlington Blvd. Street parking is still available in the neighborhoods adjacent to N. Meade Street.  Be mindful of parking signs, since Arlington County enforces them enthusiastically, and please do not park on Marine Memorial Circle (inside Iwo Jima), since parking there is one of the Park Service's issues. 

At least one porta-john is available year-round near the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the water fountain is usually on during the summer. We run rain or shine.  As far as winter weather goes, the run will go as planned unless otherwise posted via email and the SLR website.

All are welcome! If you don't want to run the same distance or course as the main group, you can go for half the distance you want to run and re-trace your steps back to Iwo Jima.  Mileage options will be given in the email preceding each Saturday's run.  We always seek volunteers to lead pace groups or bring post-run beverages.  The club will reimburse your water and Gatorade expenses. To help with beverages or as a pace leader, please send an email to Emily.

SLR August 23 - C&O Canal

Hello Saturday Runners!

This Saturday, August 23, we will be running the C&O Canal. The listed run is 19 miles, but you can make it as long or as short as you'd like since it's an out and back.

Thanks to Kevin Cunningham for post-run beverages and to Christine Westcott for mid-point drinks! We need both mid-point and post-run beverage volunteers starting in September; please visit the SLR page to see current needs and email SLR@dcroadrunners.org if you can help. The club reimburses all expenses and everyone who runs will appreciate it! No volunteers = no drinks!

See you Saturday - have a great run!

SLR August 16 - RFK Loop

Hello Saturday Runners!  

This Saturday, August 16, we will be doing the RFK Loop, listed at 12.5 miles.  The route has a return over Memorial Bridge, so you can add on by coming back over the Key Bridge (1.5 extra miles) or adding loops of Roosevelt Island after coming across Memorial.  

Thanks to Kevin Cunningham for more great post-run beverages this month!  Unfortunately we don't have a mid-point water stop this week, but luckily there are a few water fountains along the route (at the WWII Memorial, Washington Monument, the Capitol, Lincoln Park).  We do need both mid-point and post-run beverage volunteers after late August; please visit the SLR page to see what current needs are and email SLR@dcroadrunners.org if you can help.  The club reimburses all expenses and everyone who runs will appreciate it!

Hopefully this unusually nice summer weather will continue; it looks like it may be in the low 70s and sunny on Saturday.  

I'm excited to be following Erik after his three years coordinating SLR (thanks again, Erik!).  See you on Saturday - have a great run!

Emily
