SLR July 28 - Marymount Chain Bridge

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route on July 28 will be the 14 mile loop to Marymount Chain Bridge (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). You can shorten this route to 12 miles by returning over the Key Bridge instead of Memorial Bridge, or further shorten it to 10 miles by continuing straight on Military Rd all the way to Old Glebe Rd in addition to returning on the Key Bridge. For going beyond 14, you'll wind up on the C&O Canal Towpath in the second half, where you can add on practically unlimited flat(ish) miles. It looks like we have a chance of rain on Saturday morning, but that should be no surprise with how things have been going lately, so gear up and I'll see you at SLR!

Thank you Don Junta for post-run drinks this week, and Lindsey Wray for mid-run drinks! Mid-run drinks will be located about 6.5 miles into the route, on N Old Glebe Rd near Fort Ethan Allen Park.

We're now actually in good shape with volunteers for the next couple weeks, but will need more help in September and beyond for both post-run drinks and mid-run drinks, so please let me know if you can help with either of these. 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 send me an email if you'd like any additional details.

Happy running,

Mike
