Iwo Jima Memorial

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

Our start time is now 8:00 am. NOTE: Beginning on June 1 we will be meeting at 7:00 am for the summer. 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, 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 Mike if you have any other questions that are not covered.

We are always looking for volunteers to bring post-run beverages for the group, and mid-run beverages during the summer. To help with beverages, please check out the schedule of needs below and email Mike to book your slot. More info on what you need to do as a volunteer (it's easy!) is on our FAQ page. If you regularly take part in SLR then you should also be volunteering!

Sept 9 SLR

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that Ben Richter has graciously agreed to sub-lead SLR this Saturday so that I can get myself prepared (i.e. sleep in on Saturday morning!) for the Delaware Diamondman 1/2 Ironman on Sunday!

Benjamin Danforth will be providing the midpoint beverage stop...and Robert Wilkerson will be providing the post-run beverages at Iwo Jima.

Have a great run!

Cheers,
Kerry.
