SLR September 8 - Mock MCM

Hello Saturday Runners!

Tomorrow's run will be 16 miles, giving you a chance to check out the Marine Corps Marathon route with a Mock MCM (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). This will take you along (or close to) most of the major sections of the race course, with options to either extend or shorten as needed for your own schedules. If you'd like to add 2 miles, my first recommendation is to turn left in Rosslyn just after the start, running uphill along Lee Hwy until Adams St before turning around back to the route. This will approximate the early hill that you'll have here on race day. For 2 more miles, or if you'd like your 2 additional miles to be flat, after passing the Georgetown Waterfront turn left and head north along Rock Creek for 1 mile out & back. To cut 2 miles and make it 14 instead of 16, skip the National Mall portion, but still run west along Independence, out & back to the Lincoln Memorial before passing the Tidal Basin again and crossing the 14th St bridge.

Thank you Rodrigo Vellon & Christie Wetzel for post-run drinks, and Kyle Edgerton for mid-run drinks! Mid run beverages will be located at the Tidal Basin parking lot off of Maine Ave, near the paddle-boats, between 7 and 8 miles into the run.

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.

Happy running,
