Saturday Long Runs
Saturday long runs are the main function of the club. They start at 3 miles or 30 minutes and slowly build up over the course of the season (view sample schedule). Every Saturday we meet at Gateway Park in Rosslyn for announcements and warmups before heading out on one of the many jogging paths around DC and Arlington. In winter, we meet at Cosi just down the street (1801 N Lynn St) to drop off keys and jackets before heading over to the park.
Track workouts are optional, and occur mid-week, usually on Wednesdays though this day is subject to change based upon track and coach availability. Track workouts are held at Washington & Lee High School in Arlington. For those interested in these workouts, please join the ARRC-Track Yahoo group and you will receive weekly emails regarding that week’s workout and any schedule changes.
Midweek workouts are done as solo workouts, though we do offer guidance for the distance or time you should be doing between long runs. Look in the weekly newsletter for information on how much you should be running and walking on your own during the week!
