SLR February 10 - Battery Kemble Loops

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week our route will be Battery Kemble Loops (downloads: cue sheet and GPS) for about 16 miles. If you'd like to shorten this route, you can cut it to 14 miles by skipping the actual loops of Battery Kemble park, making it an out & back to the base of the park. For any distance shorter than 14, just turn around sooner. Both Jonny and I are going to be out of town this weekend, but you're in good hands with Mary Ellen, who will get things going this Saturday morning for you!

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,
