Believe it or not, another running-filled year has passed, which means it’s time to vote for the recipient of the 2014 Alfred tomFelde Trophy! This award is one of WRC’s highest honors and commemorates one individual who provided exceptional service to the club.

Since 1972, there have been 29 recipients of the award, many of whom are still active members of the club. Last year, the tomFelde Trophy was awarded to Kit Wells for his outstanding redesign of the WRC website and maps and overall promotion of the club.

Who should follow in their footsteps?

Parking at Carla’s place:

1207 Stuart Robeson Drive in McLean is in a small neighborhood with limited parking.

If you can find a spot in the neighborhood itself, more power to you. Otherwise, there are other options! You can:

  1. Park on Rt. 123 on the shoulder or in the turnout lane as you approach the neighborhood, heading NORTH on Rt. 123. My car (navy blue station wagon) will be out there to mark the spot.
  2. You can park at the Safeway on Chain Bridge Road, and walk across the street. As runners, this should not be a problem.

See you tonight! Questions, just call: 703.409.7028 or 703.356.2339.
