Sunday Distance Run for 7/26

Last week, our Sunday Distance Run was one for the books. It was incredibly hot and humid here in DC – the type of weather that even the fittest of runners will suffer in. Luckily, the humidity has broke and it looks like our next run will be blessed with more suitable conditions. Fingers crossed, at least.

Anyway, our next Sunday Distance Run will take place on Sunday, July 26 at 7:00 a.m. in front of the CB2 store in Georgetown. We’ll have three pace groups – a 7:30/8:00 min/mile, an 8:00/8:30 min/mile, and a 10:00/10:30 min/mile. Distances will vary based on what folks are training for but runs will most like range from 8 to 18 miles.

Coffee and carbs to follow at Dean & Deluca. All runners welcome.

 

Next WRC Run: Sunday, July 19

Hey WRC!

I hope you had a great run last weekend. I’m  sorry to have missed it, but I’m looking forward to seeing you this Sunday, July 18 for our Sunday Distance Run. We’ll  be starting at 7:00 a.m. in front of the CB2 Store in Georgetown.

There will be three pace groups: a 7:30 min/mile group, an 8:00-8:30 min/mile group, and a 10:30 min/mile group. Distances range from 8-15 miles, but this may vary depending on training schedule. There will be something for everyone, no matter what you have on your race schedule!

Hope to see you there!

Post-4th Sunday Distance Run

Hey everyone! Our next Sunday Distance Run is on Sunday, July 5. Hopefully you won’t be too fireworked-out to join us! It’s also the First Sunday photo so be sure to wear your Sunday best :)

We’ll meet at 7:00 a.m. in front of the CB2 store on M Street NW in Georgetown. There are three pace groups – a 7:30 min/mi, an 8:00/8:30 min/mile, and a 10:30 min/mile – running distances from 8-18 miles, depending on what folks are training for. Most of our runs are out and back so it’s easy to run back early or add on if needed.

After the run, we’ll meet at Dean and Deluca for coffee and carbs.

See you there!

SDR x2: Weekend of June 13/14

Washington Running Club has not one, but TWO days of running planned for this weekend!

First, on Saturday, June 13, we’ll join local track group, the Cardozo Crawlers, for a trail run + original U.S. Capitol ruins exploration in Rock Creek Park. It’s also an SDR, but this time it’s the Saturday Distance Run. Click here for more information on exact location, times, etc.

Then, on Sunday, June 14, we’re back to our regularly scheduled run, meeting at 7:00 a.m. in front of the CB2 Store on M Street NW in Georgetown. We have three pace groups – 7:30 min/mile, 8:30 min/mile, and 10:30 min/mile and will be running anywhere from 5-15ish miles (depending on who’s training for what). Coffee n’ carbs will follow!
