GW Parkway Run – April 12th

Posted by on Mar 17, 2015 in Events, News

George Washington Memorial Parkway, Rosslyn, VirginiaCTR’s more or less annual George Washington Parkway Run returns on Sunday, April 12th. The GW Memorial Parkway is definitely one of the more scenic roads to be encountered inside the Washington Beltway. In addition to being a major commuter route during the week, this landscaped road is also a national park.

We’re going to try something a little different this year and meet at Katie’s Coffee House located at 760 Walker Road, Great Falls, Virginia 22066, instead of along the Parkway itself. We will meet at 9:45 and plan to be on the road by around 10:15 AM. We will have a pit stop at the Columbia Island Marina located near the Pentagon before completing the run down the southern portion of the Parkway. After the run, we will have lunch as a group in the Alexandria area. (If you don’t plan to stay for lunch, please let me know – last year we our head count was a bit shaky.)

April 12th is the final day of Washington’s Cherry Blossom Festival, so traffic and crowds in the Tidal Basin area should be heavy. Consequently, we will forego a side trip into the District and stay on the Virginia side of the Potomac.

Look for an evite as the date gets closer or RSVP to me at artfournier@comcast.net or 410-535-0690. Hopefully spring will finally happen this year!
