The summer heat and humidity is planning to hold off for another week, so in an effort to beat the heat, we will start our Sunday Distance Run an hour earlier, effective Sunday, June 8, 2014. The 7 a.m. start time will be in effect through August 31st, as reflected on WRC’s calendar.
Here are some still-fresh results, as we transition out of the marathon and into the Summer Loving of middle-long distance road races (in the WRC Grand Prix, of course):

The planned run for tomorrow will be around 15 miles that will include a few trails. We will connect with the Glover-Archbold trail route off of the CCT. This will take us around to Peirce Mill where we will take the (upper) Western Ridge Trail past the stables to Bingham Drive. We will take Bingham to Beach Drive where we will proceed back down on the Valley Trail. The segment from Peirce Mill, up, around, and back down to Georgetown can be viewed here.
The maps are intended to be general idea of the trail routes, but some improvisation may be required. If you are uncertain about the directions (which may be most of us), then please stay within shouting distance of the trail master! We will stop for water at Peirce Mill (in both directions).
Yes, still meeting at 8:00 AM in front of CB2 (33rd and M Street, Georgetown).
Emily Buzzell sez:
WRC has a lot to celebrate!
We’ll be raising a toast to our spring marathon performances and to Kendall Tucker‘s team spirit and enthusiasm, which we’ll all miss when she leaves DC in a couple weeks.
Hope to see you there!
The route for the SDR tomorrow will be the Ross Drive loop. This is around 13.5 miles total. The map for the section from Peirce Mill around Ross Drive can be found on the WRC maps page as well as an “almost correct” version from a prior posting. Other mileage options can include out-and-back for fewer than 13.5 miles or the full Rock Creek – CCT loop for around 20 miles. Start at 33rd and M street in Georgetown at 8am!
Looking forward to the great weather tomorrow morning, and seeing everyone on the run!
