WRC had four runners compete in the 2019 Parks Half Marathon race on Sept. 8. Congrats to all on some excellent race performances. Net times are below:
- Pete Brunner: 1:25:13

Also, John and Collin together were the “Snoozers” relay team and took first place in the relay race by a wide margin. Nice work to all!
New first Sunday photos for September, 2019.
Another good turnout this past Sunday on 8/3/19.
Here’s the group that showed up for the first Sunday run of June, 2019.
Join WRC tomorrow, on 5/26, at 8am in front of CB2 in Georgetown for our Sunday long run. Afterwards, we’ll head to Dean and DeLuca for coffee and conversation.
IMPORTANT: This will be our final 8am start time of the season before we switch to summer hours. Beginning June 2, the Sunday run will start at 7am.
Continuing the tradition of taking a photo on the first Sunday run of the month. We always post them on Facebook, but due to requests from members, and a growing number of people deleting their Facebook accounts, we’ll try to post them here as well.
Our resident weather expert and president John Evans departs and we have the rainiest run of the year to date. Coincidence? I don’t think so. We had a good turnout and nice run despite the rain.
Ploggers and bike riders will pick up trash along a beloved Arlington running path. Ploggers will be invited to jog out and back along the W&OD trail from Bon Air Park to the terminus at Shirlington. The furthest distance would be about six miles, but shorter runs are possible by turning around earlier. Here is the promotional blurb:
