We will plan the long-awaited restart of the Sunday long runs on May 23! The Mayor’s Order for the health emergency ends on May 20, and the 23rd is the first Sunday following this. We will send out more details as the date approaches, but for now, it’s something we can all look forward to. Watch this space for updates.
Tomorrow, Sept 22, 2019, WRC switches to an 8 am start time for the fall/winter season. So enjoy that extra hour of sleep then show up well-rested for the Sunday long run.
Get an extra hour of sleep and use that potential energy on your long run with WRC! Set your clocks back an hour and I’ll see you at 8 a.m. Sunday morning.
It’s once again time for Washington Running Club to give back to some of the awesome places through which we run!
Club member and Outreach and Community Events Officer, Michaela Corr, is working to identify the best opportunity for WRCers to lend a hand and do some crosstraining at the Dumbarton Oaks Park in Georgetown.
If you want to help keep one of the prettier places where we go running looking its very best, start by letting Michaela know when you’re available, via her dandy DOODLE. We’ll only participate in this once, but click on all the dates you are free to help lend a hand.
Our store has finally reopened to take your pre-orders for club racing singlets! One American songbird, Katy Perry, already received hers and wore it out to the National Portrait Gallery (June 18 – July 6)! artnet News has another view of Katy’s NPG selfie.
So WRC members: place your orders, and we’ll have you suited for our own sweet sport.
The summer heat and humidity is planning to hold off for another week, so in an effort to beat the heat, we will start our Sunday Distance Run an hour earlier, effective Sunday, June 8, 2014. The 7 a.m. start time will be in effect through August 31st, as reflected on WRC’s calendar.
