Patrick Reaves and I (and others?) will be running the highly touted RCP to CCT to C&O 22 mile on Saturday morning. I need to get underway by 9am sharp because I'm leaving town that afternoon.
I need to confirm, but I think we'll start at the Barnes & Noble Parking lot in downtown Bethesda and work our way south down the Capl Crescent Trail to the Canal...then south to the Rock Creek Park trail...then north up the RCP trail/Beach Drive past "The Line" up the the Georgetown Branch Trail and back to B&N where, in turn, my dead body will be buried.
You can sort of follow the loop on this map. It's the almost complete oval in the middle of the screen. http://zhurnaly.com/maps/DC_Metro_Area_Trails_GPS_Waypoints.html . "Close up" the oval and you'll see the loop in its entirety.
"Comment" if you are interested in all/part of the run. I plan to take it VERY easy for the first half.
