SLR May 11 - Potomac Overlook Loops

Hello Saturday Runners!

Tomorrow morning's run, on May 11, will be Potomac Overlook Loops (downloads: cue sheet and GPS) for 12 miles. To get 12 miles you'll run 4 laps around the 1.25 mile loop in Potomac Overlook Park, so you can shorten this route running fewer laps if you'd like. Although it looks like a rainy weekend ahead, hopefully things will be dry enough for some trail running in the morning before the rain comes later on in the day!

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 next Saturday, May 18 at SLR.

Thank you Charlotte and Mark Hyatt for post-run drinks this week! We will need more post-run beverage volunteers after next week 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
