SLR November 2 - Mt Vernon Trail

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route, on Saturday November 2, will be out & back on the Mt. Vernon Trail (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). The scheduled distance is 10 miles, which you'll reach by turning around just after the airport near the intersection between the Mt Vernon Trail and Four Mile Run Trail, but this is an easy route to modify to be as long or as short as you like. If you're recovering from MCM last week an earlier turn around is in order, or if you have a later fall race and are still looking for an extra-long run you can go 20 miles or more by continuing through Old Town to the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and beyond.

Thank you Eiko Sato for our post-run drinks this week! 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.

Coming up in a few weeks, DCRR and the Del Rey Business Association will be holding the annual Alexandria Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, November 28, at 9:00 am. This five mile race is one of our club's biggest events of the year, so start your turkey early on Thanksgiving morning and then head over to George Washington Middle School in Del Rey to either run or volunteer. As the region's premier Turkey Trot, the totally flat course will be equally friendly to speedy competitors, strollers, families, dogs, and costumes! For more info and registration, please go to

Happy running,
