SLR May 18 - Fort Scott Hill

Hello Saturday Runners!

This Saturday's run, on May 18, will be the 11 mile Fort Scott Hill route (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). This route is an out & back, so for a shorter distance you can turn around sooner, or for a longer run you can continue further down the Mt. Vernon Trail after running up and down the hill. To make this route more of a loop, you can also head back to the start by continuing on Fort Scott Dr. to a left on 23rd St, a right on Army-Navy Drive, and then a return past the Pentagon after going through the parking lot tunnel beneath I-395. I'm out of town this Saturday, but Franco will be there to introduce and kick off 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 week at SLR.

Thank you Charlotte and Mark Hyatt for providing this week's post-run drinks! We no longer have any SLR beverage volunteers on the schedule after this week so please get in touch with me ASAP if you can help. In addition, after Memorial Day mid-run drinks are planned to start up again, but volunteers are needed to make that happen! 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
