SLR May 4 - Vienna Metro

Hello Saturday Runners!

For tomorrow's run (May the Fourth be with you!), our route will be 13 miles point-to-point to the Vienna Metro (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). This route will take you out the W&OD trail to the Vienna metro station, where you can catch the orange line back to Rosslyn. Don't forget to bring your SmarTrip card! If you'd rather not ride the metro or would prefer a shorter run, you can turn around at any point on the W&OD trail for an out and back run. I'm going to be out of town this weekend, but Franco will be introducing and starting the run for you.

The medical respite facility Christ House in Adams Morgan has reached out to DCRRC with the following request looking for donations of athletic or comfortable shoes for men:

Christ House provides patients who are experiencing homelessness and who have medical conditions a new or very gently used pair of comfortable shoes. We are in constant need of comfortable athletic shoes for our patients. Currently, we are down to our last few pairs.

If you have any shoes that you'd be willing to contribute to Christ House, Anne Coia will collect them this Saturday, May 4 and next Saturday, May 11 at SLR.

Thank you Charlotte and Mark Hyatt for post-run drinks this week! We will need more post-run beverage volunteers in May and beyond, as well as mid-run volunteers starting up again after Memorial Day, so please get in touch with me 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.

Happy running,

Mike
