SLR November 17 - Glover / Soapstone / Rock Creek

Hello Saturday Runners!

This Saturday's route is a 14 mile loop of Glover - Soapstone - Rock Creek (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). With some drier and warmer weather today, hopefully the trail portions of this route will be runnable by tomorrow morning, though there will probably still be some areas of mud and wet leaves, so watch your footing. I also expect that construction at the Glover - Archbold trail entrance is still ongoing, so instead of the usual entry continue up Foxhall Rd NW, take a right on 44th St NW, and a right on P St NW which will end at an entry trail into Glover - Archbold Park. If you'd like to shorten the route, an out & back run on the Glover - Archbold trail can be up to just under 10 miles.

Thank you Rich Mendelowitz for both providing post-run drinks and filling in for me this week! We are now in need of more volunteers for post-run drinks starting next week, so please let me know right away if you can help. Post-run drinks will not resume until we get another volunteer. 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 less than a week 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
