SLR November 3 - National Capitol

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route is the 12 mile National Capitol loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). You can shorten the route to just under 10 miles if you return directly via Memorial Bridge, and if you'd like to add distance, Hains Point, Mt Vernon Trail, Rock Creek Park Trail, and Custis Trail are all convenient options. After some rain on Friday, it's looking like things will hopefully clear up for a great cool morning on Saturday!

Thank you Christine and Paul Westcott for providing post-run drinks, as well as filling in for me this week! We'll need more for volunteers post-run drinks after next week, so please let me know if you can 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.

The Alexandria Turkey Trot 5 Miler is coming up in a few weeks on Thanksgiving Day. If you are in town, it's a great way to start off the holiday morning on a neighborhood race course that's friendly to speedsters, strollers, turkey costumes, dogs, and everything in between! This race is one of our club's premier events of the year, and our single biggest source of revenue, so we would love to see you there either running or volunteering. Registration for both is at the link above.

Happy running,

Mike
