SDR for 5/24, New Start Time, and Giving Back!

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 Bakerythis 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.
