SLR November 16 - Water Route

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route, on November 16, will be the 12 mile Water Route (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). You can cut about a mile off of this route by skipping the lap of the Tidal Basin, or to further reduce down to 8 miles you can both skip the Tidal Basin and run only part of the way down Hains Point to cut across at Buckeye Drive. To add distance, this route goes past any number of trail options such as Custis, C&O Towpath, Capital Crescent, Mt. Vernon, or the National Mall. I'm once again out of town this week (I'll be back next week!), so Megan will be there in my place to start the run on Saturday.

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 less than two weeks, DCRR and the Del Rey Business Association will be holding the 44th 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 elite level competition, PR chasing, strollers, families, dogs, and costumes!

Happy running,
