Memorial Day Weekend may be the unofficial start to summer, but for WRC, it’s an opportunity to give back to both the military and our city – and that’s what this holiday is all about.
Sunday Distance Run ***note new start time***
First off, we’ll burn off all (or most) of our hamburgers and hot dogs at our Sunday Distance Run. We’ll start at 7:00 a.m. (NOT 8:00 a.m.) just in front of the CB2 store on M Street in Georgetown. Distances will vary from 5-15 miles, with three pace groups of 7:00-7:30 min/mile; 8:00-8:30 min/mile, and 9:00-10:00 min/mile.
Two Opportunities to Give Back
1: Post SDR coffee/carbs at Dog Tag Bakery: this bakery is located on Grace Street NW, just a bit south of the M St NW/Wisconsin Ave NW intersection. The bakery is a non-profit that supports veteran’s with a work/study program that prepares them for the work force. Our former president, Kirk, took one for the team and taste tested their baked goods – and he approved! It’s a great combination of eating well and giving back to an important cause.
2. Cleaning up Dumbarton Oaks: our volunteer coordinator, Pat O’Keefe, will be at Dumbarton Oaks for a trail clean-up.
When: Sunday, May 24, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Where: Top of Lovers Lane on R Street NW (map)
What: trail clean up and repair – – – THIS IS STRENUOUS WORK. Please come ready to lift objects and be on your feet for a long time. Dress appropriately – closed toe shoes only. Gloves, tools, training, water, and snacks will be provided.
