NEW TIME: The time for this meetup has been moved back to 7:00PM for Spring and Summer.
NEW LOCATION: Meet at the entrance of the trail, right across from 1750 Crystal Dr / Morton's Steakhouse. Link to location on map:
On Wednesday, let's meet at 6:50pm and do a 50 min run leaving at 7:00pm. You're welcome to do more if you'd like.
Meeting Point: Meet at the entrance of the trail, right across from 1750 Crystal Dr / Morton's Steakhouse.
Let's run on the Mt. Vernon Trail. Just before the run we decide whether we'll go NORTH (DC) or SOUTH (Old Town) on the trail. Once we're done, we meet back up at the Crystal City Water Park.
All paces are welcome! We run by time, not speed so bring a watch to monitor your time and turn around at the halfway time point. If you need to run/walk, that's ok! We average anywhere between 7-13 minute/per mile pace.
First Time? Start out slow to find someone around your pace. The different paces tend to automatically gather, so you won't be alone!
Metro: Crystal City on Blue/Yellow lines, 2 blocks from metro exit.
Post-Run: A lot of times we have a little social outing after the run. You can bring a change of clothes if you'd like (though most people just go as is). We'll finish up the run, meet back at the Water Park, pick up our wallets and walk to wherever we decided to go for drinks/dinner. If you have a suggestion for a place to check out, let us know!
