Lots of coffee-drinking and spirited discussion ensued post-run.

The 2022 WRC Annual Meeting/Social will take place Friday 23 Sep 2022 7:30P. Join us!

You must be a member in good standing (2022 dues paid) to attend; you can join/renew your membership at the door or, before the event, here at washrun.org (https://www.washrun.org/membership/). Annual dues are $25 individual/$40 family. Members are welcome to bring one guest for $10 additional.

Refreshments: heavy hors d’oeuvres; BYOB (but, no red wine please!); non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.

Agenda: elections are unlikely this year: the current board members (https://www.washrun.org/about-us/board-members/) are expected to continue serving into 2023. If you wish to contest for or nominate someone for a position, however, please email washrunclub2@gmail.com no later than Friday 16 Sep 2022, in which case this could change. Otherwise, the agenda is: eat, drink, be merry, one-two speeches, and (technology gods permitting) *karaoke*.

Location: a super-nice high-rise club room in Rosslyn VA just blocks from Key Bridge. For more info please email washrunclub2@gmail.com

RSVP: If you think you’ll attend, do us a favor and RSVP by Wed 21 Sep to washrunclub2@gmail.com.

Hope to see you there!

Last 8 am start time of the season!

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.

Grammy Award Winning Sunday Social Run

Our weather luck seems to have run out, so plan for a cold Sunday social run this week. We’ll gather in front of the CB2 in Georgetown at 8:00, run a bit, and meet back up for coffee and conversation.

Please mark your calendar for our annual meeting and party, which will take place on Saturday evening, March 2. Details are still being finalized, but members in good standing who attend will receive free food, a free drink ticket, and will participate in our annual raffle (with fabulous prizes).

Sunday Run

Please be prepared for some road closures on your way to WRC’s 8:00 am social run tomorrow morning. The Marine Corps Marathon will cause some road closures near our CB2 meeting spot, but the group has traditionally met on MCM Sunday, so I expect that if you’re able to make it, there will be some others there as well. It sounds like most of the WRC board will be racing tomorrow or out of town, so don’t wait around for us!

WRC also has an opportunity to assist with the Georgetown Half Marathon on October 29. We have been asked to provide the race with a handful of WRC volunteers to staff three water stops on the course from approximately 8:00 am until (at the latest) noon. Our participation would mean a generous contribution to WRC’s financial health. If you are at all interested in helping out (or for more information), email our treasurer, James Scarborough, at jbs1958@comcast.net, and copy me (jordan@washrun.org).
