Saturday Trail Run – Rock Creek
November 28, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
The DC area is blessed with some wonderful trails for off-road running. Any of the runs are suitable for the first-time trail runner who doesn’t mind roots, rocks, hills and some mud. The pace is slower on the trails than on road and with a little practice it is not hard to adapt to uneven terrain. The rewards of trail running make it well worth the effort, so give one of these runs a try.
Discover another side of Rock Creek Park and join us for informal runs along the dirt trails. The group leaves from the ball fields just past Meadowbrook Stables for a 7-mile loop. We recommend that you can do at least 11-minute-per-mile road pace and don’t mind hills. Please let us know if you’re new to the trail so we can match you with a partner.
Saturdays at 7:30am (8am in the winter starting the third Saturday in October through the last Saturday in April). You need to be able to run at least 5 miles — that is the shortest trail length.
From 495, take Connecticut Ave south; turn left at East-West Highway. Turn right at Meadowbrook Lane, one light to the east of Beach Drive. Continue down Meadowbrook Lane past the stables to the parking area.
