Steve Thompson 8K

Please join us for our next Bunion Derby Race, the Steve Thompson 8K at Lake Accotink Park.  The race will be Tuesday, August 4th at 6:45 PM.  This race is a fun mix of paved/dirt trail.  Please note that for this year only, the race will be an out and back with a couple of out and backs legs.  The back side of the trail is undergoing construction so we will not be able to go all the way around the lake.  If you are not running and still need volunteer credit this is a good time to email the race director Ian Clements to do so.

 

New Group Runs!

The club is considering organizing a weekly track workout in DC. If you're interested in meeting for track on Wednesday evenings around 7pm, please e-mail Ben. We will determine an appropriate location based on those who are interested.

We will also be arranging an e-mail list for runners interested in meeting in South Arlington (near the intersection of Columbia Pike & Walter Reed) for informal runs at various times throughout the week. Please e-mail Alison if you're interested.

 

July Happy Hour!

Mark your calendars everyone!  We will have a DCRRC Happy Hour gathering on Thursday July 30th at Ireland's Four Courts starting at 6:00PM.  Come share your latest running and racing stories! As always the club will provide food to go with Four Courts finest beverages.
