This Saturday lets run to the National Mall! We will start at Roosevelt Island at the crosswalk in the center of parking lot, run up Iwo Jima, into the Memorial Bridge and onto the Capitol (that's 9 miles round trip). To add more mileage, you can hop on the Tidal Basin and Hains Point.
Roosevelt Island Parking Lot. Use this map to locate the parking lot [GPS: 38°53'51.99"N 77° 4'3.24"W]. To help new people find the group, please meet in the middle of the parking lot. Please meet 10 min. before the start time.
PACE and MILEAGE:
All paces are welcome! We'll be doing an out and back route, so everyone will just turn around at the halfway time marker. We generally average from 8-12 min/miles and run an hour or a set distance. But, you can run any amount of time or mileage. And if you need to walk, it's not a problem either, everyone needs to start somewhere!
