SLR July 29 - Battery Kemble Loops

Hello Saturday Runners!

On Saturday, July 29, our long run route will be Battery Kemble Loops (downloads: cue sheet and gpx) for 16 miles. You can shorten it to 14 miles by going to the base of the park, and then without doing any loops re-tracing your steps back to the start. To add extra distance, the Capital Crescent Trail, where you'll aready be running, is an easy place to extend. It looks like we're going to have wet weather on Friday and Saturday, so if things are too mushy on the trail, another option instead of the regular loop is to keep going all the way up Chain Bridge Rd, take a right on Nebraska, and then loop back down to MacArthur on Foxhall Rd to Garfield and then 49th St.

Thank you Amy Bush for post-run drinks, and Ted Logothetti for mid-run drinks this week! Mid-run drinks will be located at the base of Battery Kemble Park, near the intersection of MacArthur Blvd NW and Chain Bridge Rd NW. We're now down to only three more slots that need to be filled for mid-run drinks this summer, so please get in touch with me if you're able to help out with any Saturday from 8/26 to 9/9!

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
