SMR November 10 - Mass Ave

Date: Sunday, November 10

Time: 8:30 AM

Location: Fuse Pilates in Dupont Circle area (2008 Hillyer Rd NW Washington, DC)

Distance: 3-7+ miles

If you are looking for a social run group to get in your longer miles for a 10K, 10-Miler, or half marathon -- we are that group. As always, Fuse opens 10 minutes prior to the start of our runs. If you arrive any earlier the doors will be locked, so just wait outside (but you are in the right place!).

The SMR runs do not have a sign-in/sign-out so please make sure to stick with a buddy and please click on the route pre-run to decide what option you would like to do. We do have Gatorade, water, and will help you get matched up to someone that is running your pace and distance.

Q: How fast is everyone?
A: We have all paces from 8 minute miles to 14 minute miles.

Q: What if I don't want to go the full planned distance?
A: No problem, just turn around when you've gone half as far as you want to. There are usually runners going 2-3 miles shorter, and even some maniacs who go further.

Q: I have a specific race I am training for, will this group work for me?
A: The SMR functions as an informal run without formal coaching. We will have coaches on-hand, but if you are looking for a specific time goal or race strategy we suggest you check out the DC Road Runners formal half or full marathon training programs.

Q: What is the difference between the SLR and the SMR
