SLR June 15 - Olympic Torch

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week, on Saturday June 15, our route will be Olympic Torch (downloads: cue sheet and GPS) for about 12 miles. Towards the end of the route on the Glover-Archbold trail, the lower park entrance area is closed, so you'll have to go off to the right at a trail intersection, towards P St and then Foxhall Rd, which will take you down to the closed park entrance and the Canal Rd underpass. One way to run shorter than 12 miles is to divert left onto Calvert St at Woodley Park, and then head back along Rock Creek Park followed by the Key Bridge, which would be roughly 8 miles.

Thank you Lauren Armentrout for post-run drinks this week! Please note that due to lack of a volunteer, we will once again not have mid-run drinks provided this Saturday. I've now posted the full SLR schedule for this summer and there are still many openings in the coming weeks, so if this is a benefit of our group run that you enjoy, please do your part and help out! We'll also need post-run drinks help beginning in July.

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,
