SLR February 3 - Cathedral Clintons

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's run, on Saturday, February 3, will be 13 miles along the Cathedral Clintons route (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). This route is a nice mix of roads, trails, flats, and hills, going up into northwest DC. If you'd rather go for a shorter run, an out & back along Rock Creek without going up to the Cathedral would be about 9 miles. After a spell of relatively mild weather, we'll be back down in the low to mid 20s tomorrow morning, but the sun will be out and today's wind should be past, so it's looking like a great day to run!

Thank you Christine and Paul Westcott for providing our post-run drinks this week! We're actually all set on volunteers for the time being until I start planning further out, but the weekly schedule of volunteers, routes, and distances is always kept up-to-date on the SLR web page, and you can email me any time to book your slot. For more info on how volunteering works, please first see the SLR FAQ, and after that get in touch with me if you'd like any additional details.

Registration is now open for the RRCA Club Challenge Ten Miler, on February 26. This is a great race where you can represent our club among the other RRCA chapters in DC and Maryland, while testing yourself on a challenging course! The club will pay your $10 entry fee, but you must be a current DCRR club member in good standing, or else your name will be removed from the roster. We'll also provide bus transportation to the race, with pickup and dropoff at Courthouse and Dupont Circle, which you'll need to separately register for here if you'd like to reserve a spot.

Coming up on Sunday March 4, we will be holding the annual Club Banquet and Membership Meeting at Maggiano's in Friendship Heights! After cocktails and dinner, the event will feature presentation of our annual awards, a state of the club update, and a keynote address from local world-class ultra-runner Michael Wardian on his experience running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days. The banquet is one of our signature events for the year, and is also a great way to spend some relaxed time off the roads with your running friends and their families! Please register in advance using the link above if you plan to attend.

Happy running,
