SLR July 1 - Capital Crescent Trail

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's run, on Saturday July 1, will be an out and back on the Capital Crescent Trail (downloads: cue sheet and gpx). The scheduled distance is 14 miles, which would mean a turn-around point at mile marker 4.5 near River Rd. Mid-run drinks this week will be at the CCT intersection with MacArthur Blvd, which you'll run into at about 5.25 miles and 8.25 miles (after the turn-around) if you're going 14 miles. If you'd like to go any other distance besides 14 miles, just turn around either earlier or later on the trail. There are also water fountains available at a few locations, at Fletchers just past 3 miles out, at 5 miles out on the CCT, and then at 8 miles out on the CCT just before Bethesda. The two water fountains at 5 and 8 miles are good turn-around landmarks if you're looking for either a 10 mile or 16 mile run.

Thank you Liz Kakouris for mid-run drinks this week and Christie Wetzel for post-run drinks! We will need more volunteers for mid-run drinks starting next week, as there are lots of openings in the schedule. Please take a look at what's needed, and let me know when you can help out.

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
