Runs planned for this Sunday 2/2

Come out and enjoy the warmer weather this weekend at the Sunday Distance Run.  Some of the runs that will be starting at 33rd & M St at 8 a.m. include:

  • 11 miles out-and-back on the Capital Crescent trail, led by Carla
  • 12 miles, with the second half faster, route TBD
  • 14 miles, brisk pace, route TBD

In addition, some WRC-ers will be at West Potomac Park to take part in this 5k, which conveniently starts at 8 a.m., allowing them to make it back to D & D in time to meet the rest of the crew.

See you out there!


Just a quick note of recognition and thanks to Carla Freyvogel, Mahdere Paulos Hirigo, Kayla Nolan, and Edward Dudlik, for combining forces in order to present a wonderful “Town of Runners” evening, shared with so many new and old friends. Our WRC hearts are with Bekoji, our minds are filled with thoughtful dialogue prompted by the film, and our legs are ready to carry us over the hills and around the track, just like Alemi and Hawii.

For those who feel moved by the screening to enable athletic, educational and leadership opportunities for Ethiopian women runners, we unhesitatingly suggest supporting the Girls Gotta Run Foundation.

Special thanks go to WRCers Liz Lambert and Michaela Corr, who both helped the club to coordinate this event, despite being drawn away to their other (amazing) obligations.

And finally, many thanks to everyone who attended tonight.

Come for the Meeting, Stay for the Party!

Please join the Washington Running Club on the evening of Saturday, January 25th for our annual meeting and party.

We’ll be celebrating another year of Sunday distance runs, Tuesday track workouts, snazzy jerseys, and good press, all while being surrounded by the folks who inspire us along the way. We’ll also elect new officers of the board and recognize members who have displayed exemplary acts of service to the club.
