SLR September 5 - MacArthur AU Loop

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route on September 5 will be a new one that I'm adding to our rotation for the first time this week, to mix up our options for 20 mile runs. This route will take us out along the Towpath into MD and then back in to DC on the MacArthur AU Loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). For the new route, take a look at the map and directions in advance, and if you have a navigation-capable watch, you can pre-load the above linked GPS file. You can shorten the route somewhat to just over 17 miles by cutting the AU portion, and returning all the way straight down MacArthur Blvd to Foxhall Rd and into Georgetown.

Thank you Kyle Edgerton for post-run drinks, and Liz Ozeki for this week's mid-run drinks! Mid-run drinks will be located just after 11 miles, at a roadside parking area on MacArthur Blvd. We're now covered for drinks through all runs currently on the schedule, so thanks to all the volunteers! If you can help with post-run drinks in November 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.

If you're on a club race team or would like to represent our colors in your upcoming races this fall, Deborah will be at SLR this week with navy blue club singlets. If you have one that doesn't fit, you can also get a swap at this time too (as long as you bring a clean one to exchange!)

Happy running,
