SLR November 11 - Glover / Mass / Crescent

Hello Saturday Runners!

On Saturday, November 11, our route will be Glover - Mass - Crescent (downloads: cue sheet and GPS) for 13 miles. To shorten this run, you can get 8 miles by going out & back on the Glover Archbold trail to Mass Ave, or 10 miles if you keep going past Mass Ave all the way to the end of the trail at Van Ness before turning around. To add mileage, you easily tack on out & back segments along either the Capital Crescent or C&O Towpath trails, or return to VA via other bridges past the Key Bridge. I can't make it to the run this week unfortunately, but Jonny will be there to kick things off. It's going to be COLD, in the mid-20s, for the first time this season on Saturday morning, so don't forget to bring your gloves, hats, and jackets!

Thank you Heather Johnston for this week's post-run drinks! We're going to need more volunteers to step up soon, with a post-run drink schedule that's wide open after only two weeks from Saturday. Please take a look at your calendar and let me know what you can do!

Volunteer needs along with the weekly route & distance schedule are always kept up-to-date on the SLR web page, and you can email me any time to schedule your slot. For more details on how volunteering works, please see the SLR FAQ, or get in touch with me if your questions are not addressed there. SLR drinks are entirely volunteer supported, so if you regularly enjoy this perk, do your part to keep it going!

Club Announcements:

The Alexandria Turkey Trot 5 Miler is coming up quickly on Thanksgiving Day. If you are in town, it's a great way to start off the holiday morning on a neighborhood course that's friendly to speedsters, strollers, turkey costumes, dogs, and everything in between! This race is one of our club's premier events of the year, and our single biggest source of revenue, so we would love to see you there either running or volunteering. Registration for both is at the link above.

Nominations for 2017 club awards (presented at the Club Banquet in March 2018) will be accepted until January 7, 2018. You may submit multiple nominations, for the same or different awards. Self-nominations are allowed.

Happy running,
