Iwo Jima Memorial

Welcome!  This is the home of the world-famous (well, maybe locally well-known) SLR.

Our start time is 7:00 am during summer months. Every Saturday we meet at North Meade Street Park, a small park northwest of the USMC War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) in Rosslyn. The closest address for mapping purposes is 1300 Arlington Blvd, and street parking is available in the neighborhoods adjacent to N. Meade Street. Be mindful of parking signs, since Arlington County enforces them enthusiastically, and please do not park on Marine Memorial Circle (inside Iwo Jima), because this parking area is for memorial use only. At least one porta-john is available year-round near the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the memorial's water fountain is usually on during the summer.

We run rain or shine! In cases of extreme weather (snow, ice, thunderstorms, heat waves) we do occasionally either change our meeting time or cancel the run for safety, but the run will be held as planned unless otherwise posted via email/twitter/facebook and here on the SLR web page.

All are welcome! We're an informal group, and there are no requirements for speed, racing experience, or what distance means "long" for you, other than the suggested route that most of our group will be running each week. If you don't want to run the same distance or course as the main group, you can go out for half of your own target distance and re-trace your steps back to Iwo Jima. More specific route info and mileage options will be given in the email/post preceding each Saturday's run. SLR always features a run from our extensive Route Catalog, which gives us a wide range of options to keep things fresh for you each week. We have routes that are flat, hilly, looped, out & back, roads, sidewalks, trails, and more, reaching all around the local area of DC, VA, and MD!

For more details about Saturday Long Runs please read our Frequently Asked Questions to get a sense for what it's like to run with us, or send an email to Megan if you have any other questions that are not covered.

Due to health concerns there will be no mid-run or post-run drinks until further notice, please bring your own and be safe.

Bingo is back by popular demand! We had six people complete bingo in December and I hope more can this month! It is the shortest month of the year and the prize is bragging rights so get to it!

1) Download a copy of the bingo card (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mWXscszQ9TOAHfGbmi4n9kF_hhzNsHKF/view?usp=sharing) File > Download > Microsoft Excel

2) Each time you are out running see if you can cross out a bingo square or two or three! "Cross out" your bingo square by putting the date you completed the square.

3) Complete 4 out of 5 rows horizontally or 4 out of 5 rows vertically and get BINGO!

4) Email me your completed bingo card at megan@dcroadrunners.org and post to the Facebook group!

We can also use Facebook as a platform for asking for tips on where to find specific items, sending pictures and spreading cheer, and posting completed bingo cards for inspiration!

Best of luck!
