Max has a good plan for a Sunday long run (see immd below), but a few of us decided to forgo a race environment and get in something a bit longer.
Reaves, Murphy, Bain, me and others plan to start on the Canal Towpath at Edwards Ferry (mile marker 30.44) and run south along the C&O to Old Anglers Inn (11.97). 30.44 - 11.97 = 18.47 Miles. This promises to be an epic run.
All interested participants should meet at Old Anglers (MAP HERE) at 8:15AM and then we will carpool to Edwards Ferry in one car...then run straight back to Old Anglers. Hopefully we can start the run by 9am and finish around 11am. Coffee and tomfoolery to follow.
This run is mostly shaded, with bathrooms and water in various spots along the way. Additionally, we plan to drop off some Gatorade at a lock somewhere in between both points (likely mile marker 15-20). Those who want to run less than 18.5 could park their cars and carpool to a separate spot. If you'd like suggestions, indicate the amount of mileage you're looking to go and let me know.
SATURDAY - Georgetown Running Company at 8:30AM for the usual, easy group run. Max plans to open the store early.
