SLR September 7 - Mock MCM

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route on Saturday, September 7, will give you a chance to demo most of the middle miles of the Marine Corps Marathon race course with 16 miles of Mock MCM (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you'd like to lengthen this run to 20 miles while making it even more like the race course, after about 1/2 mile take a left up Lee Highway, which will take you up and then down again on the race's biggest hill, and then a few miles later add a second out and back on Rock Creek Park, as shown on this map. I'm going to be out of town again this week, but Jill will be filling in for me to kick off both SLR and MTP.

Also this Saturday morning, we'll have Valencia from Ragnar Relays visiting both before and after the run! If you'd like to learn more about this fun race series, pick up some extra post-run refreshments/breakfast items, or try to land some give-aways, be sure either get to SLR a few minutes early, or hang out afterwards.

Thanks this week to Emily & Kenneth Riley for post-run drinks, and Paul Martinovich for mid-run drinks! Mid-run drinks will be located at about 8 miles, just after you pass the Tidal Basin paddle boat parking area, trailside at the parking exit and before the Kutz Bridge. 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 expired last 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.

Happy running,

Mike
