    Question of the week: What races are you running this summer?

    Summertime is a great time for racing, there are numerous choices in the DC area, including PGRC’s own Thursday night summer series, and Women’s Distance Festival 5K and Run/Walk for Haiti 5K on August 28. 

    Or maybe you are traveling this summer and running a race at your vacation destination?

    So, what are YOUR summertime race plans??

    National Trails Day June 5

    This Saturday, REI is organizing trail work, clean up, and invasive plant removal at Greenbelt Park, meeting at Sweetgum Picnic Area at 8:30am.  Please consider helping to maintain our beautiful Greenbelt Park.  Arrive early at 7:30am, get in your run, and then volunteer!  How convenient it is!

    Here’s the signup link.  The website says they have 40 spots left out of 50, so there is still a big need for volunteers.

    So who’s volunteering?
