Does anyone know of any local, supported 20-mile runs this weekend?

I know of one in Fredericksburg, but it might be difficult to get to.

Thanks!!

Abby

DC Road Runners had their 20 miler on Sunday; date coincides with most training programs for MCM (4 weeks out).

I'd suggest doing SLR as they're planning on running 20 on the CCT and you'll hit water fountains 4 times. Gatorade and water bonus if a volunteer has or will step up to provide mid-run beverages.

In Harwood, MD there is the Metric Marathon (16.3 miles) sponsored by the Annapolis Striders. The course has some hills at miles 12-14. I've done this race many times, but this year some of my runners and I are manning one of the water stops. Registration is ten dollars on race day. Website is www.annapolisstriders.org

The DC Road Runners Marathon Program is running 22 from GTown Running Co on Saturday. I've run with them once before and they are a nice bunch. A friend is one of the coaches so I could try and hook you two together if you're interested.

All of Potomac Runners Saturday runs are water-supported, and some will be going long this weekend for marathon training. They start from Belle Haven in Alexandria.

Pacers- Logan Circle has a 20 miler, as well as several other supported runs, this weekend, too. Are you also training for MCM? Good luck!
