Sunday Run … and more

It’s obviously the best weekend of the year. College football, US Open Tennis, Yankees/Red Sox…. and lots of opportunities to run with WRC!

Sunday, we’ll be meeting in front of the CB2 on M Street for our 7:00 AM social run. A few die-hards will be there at 6:05 AM to fit in 6 miles before the rest of the group arrives. And wear your Sunday running finest for our first Sunday photo.

Labor Day Monday is our fourth annual RUN OF SHAME. If you’re new to the group, a regular, or haven’t been by recently, this is the event for you. Here are the details…

Run Of Shame / Sunday Run

Looks like we are in for near-perfect conditions for our Sunday distance run! Come on out for some quality miles with your running buds, and cap it off with coffee and socializing at Dean & Deluca after. Variable pace groups (7:00 – 10:00) and distances (8-20 mi).

We’ll start as usual at 0700 in front of CB2 on M and 33rd in Georgetown. For those running really long (e.g. 20) and still desiring to make social hour before everyone else leaves, a few stalwart souls will start at 0600 to grab a quick 6 miles around the mall before rejoining the main group at 0700. (That very select group has lately been a ~8min pace group.)

Finally, remember our (4th?) annual Labor Day Run of Shame, taking place on Monday, Sept. 4 (so, two Mondays hence) at the Georgetown Waterfront. See flyer below. This is always a blast and has proven a great WRC recruiting event as well. Plan on coming out to participate and be an ambassador for the club—try and bring a friend!

Run of Shame 2017

Join the Washington Running Club on a 6 mile fun run, stopping at some of DC’s notorious spots to learn about the intrigue, scandal, shame, and history that has shaped our city. Entertaining speakers, easy pace, good conversation, great folks. Finish up with a splash in the fountain and cold watermelon!

Monday, September 4th 2017. Leaving from the intersection of Wisconsin and Water Street at 8:30 am.
