Marine Corps Marathon Water Stop, October 30, Washington, DC

DCRR will again support Marine Corps Marathon at a water and food stop at the intersection of Canal Rd and Foxhall Rd, just past Georgetown University. This is a new location for us and is a stop for the 50K runners, a smaller group than the full marathon.

To sign up, go to:  https://xactllc.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/?id=63687 and enter the passcode “WP50KDCRRC”. This will take you to the registration page for our group. Enter your information and your all set.

Contact ted.cochrane@verizon.net if you have questions.

Constant Needs:

We are always looking for Saturday Long Run refreshment volunteers. If you plan to attend SLR for at least 2 consecutive weeks, and haven't volunteered in a while (or at all), please consider helping to support the group (and yourself)! This is a fairly easy job, all you have to do is bring gatorade, water, and cups to SLR on Saturday morning, and the club will reimburse the expenses (think of all the rewards points you can get!)  Please (read: please, please, pretty please) check the SLR Page for dates needed, and e-mail slr@dcroadrunners.org if you are able to help out!
