Saturday Morning Long(er) Run - Lincoln Park

*Special note for Saturday 20th April Run for Boston*

This week we are doing the Arboretum route, which is beautiful but is best to drive to. Runners will have two options - (1) meet at Lincoln Park at 9am, as usual, and we will carpool up.  (2) meet at Arboretum at 9:25am, for 9:30am run start (meet in main parking lot next to R St next to the map of the Arboretum)

Event: Saturday Morning Long(er) Distance Run

Location: Meet in the middle of Lincoln Park

Distance: Open to all distances - runners typically training for half and full marathons.

Pace: Open to all paces.

Run Leader: Lindsay M., James or Maddie (more information - email [masked]

Hello runners! Welcome to spring running, here is the schedule of upcoming routes. If you've got a suggestion for another route, please feel free to share!


4/13 - Anacostia Trail Southern Loop (6.3 miles) (MAP:

4/20 - National Arboretum (6.0 miles) (*Carpool to Site*) (MAP:

4/27 - Anacostia Trail Northern Loop (6.0 miles) (MAP:

5/04 - TBD

5/11 - Tidal Basin (7.0 miles)



Note - with the exception of the Tidal Basin, these trails don't have water fountains. If you like to hydrate during a run you will want to bring your own. Personally I find that for runs about 1 hour or less, like all of these, I don't need to hydrate.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to figure out another distance option, I will be happy to help :)

I hope to see you Saturday!

    Hi all! I am unfamiliar with the procedure, but does someone have space in their car to take me with them to the Arboretum from Lincoln Park?

      Hi David, sorry for the confusion. The info page is out dated, tomorrow we are doing Anacostia South loop which starts and ends right at the park :-) I hope to see you there!

    Hi - are you doing the arboretum again? I thought last week you mentioned doing the Anacostia River Trail this week? Thanks!

      Hello Michelle! We'll meet at Lincoln Park this week and start the run from there. For all of our runs, we'll meet at the park. For Arboretum we meet at the park then drive up to the Arboretum which is where you met us :-) Otherwise we always meet at the park and also start/end the runs there :-)

      Ok, great! I think I just misinterpreted the info above. Thanks for the clarification :) Dreading running in the rain, but am motivated by the challenge! See you tomorrow :)

    Hey! I will be at the Wed run for sure! Where is it meeting? This is my second day in DC so I am a little lost! If anyone lives near C St. and wants to meet me to metro, let me know (still learning the mtro system!)[masked]

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
