Iwo Jima Memorial

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

Our start time is 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 September 20 – Water Route

Hello Saturday Runners!

This Saturday, September 20th, we will be running the Water Route, listed at 12 miles.  If you would like to go longer, each loop of Hains Point is about three miles.  We are starting at 8:00 am. 

Thanks to Angela Katson for the post-run drinks!  We don’t have a mid-point water stop this week, but there are several water fountains along the route (along Ohio Drive, around Hains Point, under the Jefferson Memorial, by FDR).  We need post-run beverage volunteers for October; 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!  The mid-run drinks end October 4th, but we have coverage the next two weekends. 

Have a great run!

SLR September 13 – Rock Creek

Hello Saturday Runners!

This Saturday, September 13, we will be running an out-and-back on the Rock Creek trail.  The route is listed at 18 miles, but of course you can make it as long or as short as you’d like. We are still starting at 8:00 am. 

Thanks to Graham Magill for both the mid-point and post-run drinks!  We need both mid-point and post-run beverage volunteers starting next weekend; 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!  Please remember no volunteers = no drinks.

See you Saturday - have a great run!

SLR September 6 – Battery Kemble Loops

Hello Saturday Runners!

Please remember that we will be starting our run at 8:00am this Saturday – the good news is that you get an extra hour of sleep and hopefully the heat will hold off until later in the day.

This Saturday, September 6, we will be running the Battery Kemble Loops, a 16-mile route. The full route includes two 1.25 mile loops of Battery Kemble, so you can cut off one or both loops to go shorter.  

Thanks to Graham Magill for post-run beverages!  We don’t have a mid-point drink stop this week, but luckily there is a water fountain at about mile 5 of the route.  We need both mid-point and post-run beverage volunteers this month; 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!

See you Saturday - have a great run!
