SLR August 4 - Battery Kemble Loops

Hello Saturday Runners!

On August 4, our route will be Battery Kemble Loops (downloads: cue sheet and GPS) for 16 miles. If you'd like less than 16 miles, you can cut it down to 14 by running only to the base of Battery Kemble Park, and heading back to the start instead of running loops up and down the trail. For distance beyond 16, you can add as much as you like on the Capital Crescent Trail. Loops of Battery Kemble Park contain a trail section, and while the forecast on Saturday morning should be clear, there will have been a lot of rain on Thursday and Friday. If the trail is too soggy, you can run loops on the road instead going Chain Bridge - Nebraska - Foxhall - Garfield - 49th - Ashby. That sounds complicated but it's not so bad if you look at it on the map - except for a couple places, it's just all the right turns you can take.

Thanks this week go to Don Junta for post-run drinks, and Kate Scott for mid-run drinks! Mid-run drinks will be at 7 miles, at the base of Battery Kemble park, near the intersection of MacArthur Blvd and Chain Bridge Rd.

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,
