SLR August 31 - Normanstone Klingle

Hello Saturday Runners!

Our route this week for Saturday, August 31, will be 13 miles long to the loop of Normanstone Klingle (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If your training schedule calls for a longer run this week, you can extend it by adding a second 3.5 mile loop of Normanstone-Klingle, or continue a little further up Rock Creek after the loop before turning around to head back. For less than 13 miles, I'd suggest simply running out & back on Rock Creek. Jonny and I are both out of town this week actually, but Rich will be introducing the route for me, after Big Guy and Jill cover the coaching part of things beforehand.

Thanks this week to Jill Brasky for post-run drinks, and Katherine & Madelyn Zeller for mid-run drinks! Mid-run drinks will be located at about 6.5 miles, at the bottom of the Klingle Valley Trail, after you've run down the big hill and are entering Rock Creek Park near Porter St. We're now actually completely covered for drinks volunteers up through 10/12, so thank you to everyone who has gotten in touch with me! If you can help with post-run drinks on 10/19 and beyond, please feel free to send me an email to pre-claim your slot before I post an extended schedule. 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.

Reminder - if you have not recently renewed your club membership, it expires on Saturday (Aug 31)! To check your current status or renew if necessary, log in to the club website and go to the My Membership page.

Later this weekend on Sunday, September 1, we'll be holding our big end-of-summer, back-to-school race! The Larry Noel 15K Race and 3K Fun Run will be run in Greenbelt, featuring great courses and a great T-shirt. Click here for complete information and online registration.

In other news, we have a new club apparel store, which is now up and running! For members who are on DCRRC race teams, you will still be provided with a free navy blue singlet as in the past, but you can now order a number of other additional items if you'd like.

Happy running,

Mike
