Hi Runners,

The route this week is mixing it up and staying in Virginia. It is Long Bridge Park, a 15 mile loop due South. The cue sheet and gps files are here. I have been under the weather and plan to sleep in, but Coach Big Guy and Jill will be there to kick you off. I hope you enjoy the Mt. Vernon trail!

I am having technical difficulties updating the cue sheet hosted on AWS, but there is a minor change at mile 3.8. Coach Big Guy has the updated Cue Sheet. The Plot a Route link is correct and you can download updated GPS file from there.

The change is instead of going south at at 3.8, take a left to go North on the pedestrian path. Loop around the Long Bridge Aquatics center; there's a water station at the southeast corner of the building. Tank up if you'd like. Continue on the pedestrian path into Crystal City and continue through Crystal City on Crystal Drive.

The next club race is the DCRRC Langley 8K on February 4th.

The George Washington's Birthday Marathon and Marathon Relay will take place on 2/19! Mark your calendars for racing or volunteering.

Consider running the RRCA Club Challenge 10-Miler on Sunday, February 26! Registration is now open, so please sign up here. (NB: if you signed up using last week’s link, we are working to make sure you are listed on DCRRC’s roster, not Howard County’s, and to getting your $20 refunded.) DCRRC pays the entire registration fee and provides transportation to Columbia, MD.

Happy running!
