SLR June 1 - 7:00 AM START TIME - MacArthur Loop

Hello Saturday Runners!

Don't forget that our meeting time is shifting to 7:00 am starting this week. This will get us out there earlier and help stave off (if not beat) the heat during the summer months. Meeting time will go back to 8:00 am in the fall, probably early October.

This Saturday's route, on June 1, will be the 13 mile MacArthur Loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you'd like a shorter run, I'd recommend just going out & back on the Capital Crescent Trail where we'll start out this route. With things heating up this week, the move back to 7:00 am is coming at a good time! We're also going to have volunteer-provided mid-run drinks on Saturday for the first time this season, so you can expect to find this between miles 7 and 8 on the route, and be sure to thank Anna for this!

Thanks this week go to Lauren Armentrout for post-run drinks, and Anna Suhring for mid-run drinks! This week's mid-run drinks will be located on 49th St between Mass Ave and Tilden. We are still in need of mid-run drink volunteers after this week, as well as post-run volunteers in a couple weeks, so let me know if you can help with either one. I'll also soon be posting a full summer schedule that will take things out through the Marine Corps Marathon in October. 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,
