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.

Hello Saturday Runners!

This Saturday, November 15th, we will be running the Cathedral Clintons route. It is a 13-mile route with lots of hills! The full route starts and ends crossing Memorial Bridge, so you can cut off about 2 miles by finishing over Key Bridge.
