Hello Saturday Runners!
Our route on Saturday September 26 will be Arlington Triangle for 16 miles. To get 18 miles, at Lynn St. you can continue on the Mt. Vernon Trail past Roosevelt Island and back via Memorial Bridge, or to get a shorter run I would suggest turning the route into an out & back.
Don’t forget that the Clarendon Day street festival (as well as 5K & 10K races) are happening on Saturday morning, so you may run into some street closures on your way to or from SLR. You can find details on street closures here. You might also bump into the 10K race underway when crossing Wilson Blvd on your way back to North Meade St Park at the end of Arlington Triangle, so please use caution, be courteous to race participants, and follow directions from any course marshals who may be at the intersection.
Thanks this week go to Rodney Ast for post-run beverages, and to Elizabeth Haxthausen for mid-run beverages! We have no volunteers scheduled after this week, so please get in touch with me if you can help with either mid-run or post run drinks. These are both entirely volunteer supported, and won’t resume until we get volunteers! A scheudle of routes and volunteer needs is posted on the SLR page so let me know what you can cover. Please email me any dates you’d like to do mid-run drinks, or at least 2 consecutive weeks (preferably 4 weeks) for post-run drinks – all beverage expenses will be reimbursed by the club.
