SLR September 1 - Normanstone Klingle

Hello Saturday Runners!

Tomorrow we will be running 13 miles on the Normanstone Klingle route (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you'd like to go further, you can continue north along Rock Creek Park before turning around to head back, or to shorten the route I'd suggest simply going out & back on Rock Creek without the Normanstone loop. After you pass the Zoo on your way back, I expect that you'll need to run through the Beach Dr tunnel again, due to trail closure in that area.

Thank you to Rodrigo Vellon & Christie Wetzel for post-run drinks, as well as Ruby & Katherine Len for mid-run drinks! Mid run beverages will be located on Klingle Rd (or Woodley Rd just before it), before going downhill along the Klingle Valley Trail into Rock Creek.

We have beverages mostly covered for the rest of the summer, but still need to fill in volunteers for both post-run and mid-run drinks on October 6, so please let me know if you can help out with this. 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 general info on how volunteering works see the SLR FAQ or send me an email if you have any other specific questions.

Reminder - if you have not recently renewed your club membership, it expires today! To check your current status or renew if necessary, log in to the club website and go to the My Membership page.

In other news, registration is now open for next year's George Washington's Birthday Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, February 17! This race has the option of either a three-person relay, or of course a solo run of 26.2 miles, and is a great way to stay motivated for wintertime training.

Happy running,
