SLR June 2 - Marymount Chain Bridge - 7AM Start time!

Hello Saturday Runners!

It begins: 7:00 AM Start time! This Sat, June 2nd, we will be running the Marymount Chain Bridge Loop Route. The listed route mileage is 14 miles. Check the cue sheet and map for full details.

Please thank Robyn Bernardy for our post-run Beverages. Fortunately people have been stepping up for post-run drinks and we should be covered through August.  However, now that we are entering the hot and humid summer weather, we will be needing mid-run beverage stop volunteers.  I posted the dates of need on the SLR website. Email slr@dcroadrunners.org if you can help out.

I will be out one more Saturday but back next week.  Steve "Big Guy" Easley will be getting things started this Saturday. We continue to meet at the park at 1300 Arlington Blvd., though things are in motion to get us moved back to the normal SLR starting point at Iwo Jima.  Stay tuned for updates.

Directions: Go through Rosslyn and take Custis Trail West, just after crossing bridge over Spout Run Pkwy, turnoff sharp left, go under bridge and turn left on bike trail to Lorcum Lane.
