Welcome! This is the home of the world-famous (well, maybe locally well-known) SLR.
Our start time is now 7:00am for the summer. Every Saturday we meet at North Meade Street Park, a small park northwest of the USMC War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) in Rosslyn. The closest address for mapping purposes is 1300 Arlington Blvd, and street parking is available in the nearby neighborhoods. Be mindful of parking signs, since Arlington County enforces them enthusiastically, and please do not park on Marine Memorial Circle (inside Iwo Jima), since parking there is for memorial use only.
At least one porta-john is available year-round near the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the water fountain is usually on during the summer. We run rain or shine! As far as winter weather goes, the run will go as planned unless otherwise posted via email and the SLR website.
All are welcome! If you don’t want to run the same distance or course as the main group, you can go for half the distance you want to run and re-trace your steps back to Iwo Jima. Mileage options will be given in the email preceding each Saturday’s run. We are always looking for volunteers to bring post-run beverages, and/or mid-run beverages during the summer – the club will reimburse your water and Gatorade expenses. To help with beverages, please send an email to Mike.
