SLR October 27 - Upton Hill

Hello Saturday Runners!

Good luck to all of you who are running the Marine Corps Marathon this Sunday! For those of you who will be there as runners, friends, spectators, or volunteers, DCRRC has partnered again this year with Hope for Warriors! As a DCRRC member, you can access the race via the Charity Village. As a partner, you can leave your gear at their tent and rest easy before the race, enjoying snacks and easy access to porty-potties, and pizza at 11:00! The tent is a convenient walk to the start. Additional details and full info is available on our website at the volunteer page.

If you aren't marathoning this weekend and will be at SLR instead, this week's route is 12 miles to Upton Hill (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). This is an out & back route, so it can easily be shortened to any distance you like by turning around early. If you'd like extra distance, you can add on by going further out along the Custis and W&OD trails after returning from Upton Hill.

Thank you Abbey Gibson for providing post-run drinks over the last few weeks! We'll need more volunteers post-run drinks in just a few weeks, so please let me know if you help. 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.

Unfortunately I've been sidelined with a broken foot, so I'm not going to be at SLR for a little while. The posted weekly schedule of routes and volunteers now includes a new (temporary!) column to track who will be filling in for me to lead the runs in my absence, and after a few months of recovery I fully intend and expect to be back at it with you all again!

Happy running,
