SLR May 13 - Battery Kemble Loops

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's long run, on Saturday May 13, will be our 16 mile route to Battery Kemble Loops (additional map here). If you'd like to shorten the route, it will be about 14 miles if you run to the base of Battery Kemble park, and retrace your steps back to the start without running any loops in the park. For less still, the water fountain on Capital Crescent that you go out to on this route is 5 miles from the start, so you'd have a 10 mile run using this as your turn-around point. It looks like we have more wet weather in store on Saturday, so bring your rain gear...

I'm going to be out of town this weekend, but Brian Danza will be starting the run for me, on the 10th anniversary week of his first SLR with DCRRC!

Thank you Christine & Paul Westcott for providing post-run drinks this week! Please remember that starting in June we'll be looking for volunteers to cover mid-run drinks as well as post-run drinks, to help get us through the hot summer months. Also, as a reminder, our meeting time will be shifting an hour earlier to 7:00 am, beginning the Saturday after Memorial Day, on June 3.

Volunteer needs along with the weekly route & distance schedule are always kept up-to-date on the SLR web page, and you can email me any time to schedule your slot. Post-run volunteers are typically scheduled for at least 2 consecutive weeks to cut down on handoffs of the bins, while mid-run drinks can be booked on a week by week basis. SLR drinks are entirely volunteer supported, so if you regularly enjoy this perk, do your part to keep it going! Volunteering is easy, doesn't take a lot of time, and all restocking expenses will be reimbursed by the club.

Happy running!

Mike
