SLR April 20 - DC Sightseer Loop

Hello Saturday Runners!

After attempting to schedule it last week, the week is take two for the 13 mile DC Sightseer Loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). This week the festival really is over, so no parade or closing ceremonies to contend with. If you'd like to shorten the run you can cut about a mile by skipping the Tidal Basin lap, or to cut another ~2.5 miles beyond that you can return directly over Memorial Bridge after reaching the Lincoln Memorial. I'm still out of town again this weekend, but Andrew will filling in for me again this week.

Thank you Alex Albertini for post-run drinks this week! There are currently no more volunteers on the schedule after next week, so please get in touch with me if you can help. I've now posted the schedule going out through mid-June, including a couple weeks after Memorial Day when we'll start back up with mid-run drinks, so those volunteer opportunities are available too. 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,
