WEEK 7 LONG RUN, SATURDAY 02/25/17: 9 & 12 MILES, CAFE MOXO, 8AM.
Start at Cafe Moxo at 8am. If you are gathering inside the cafe, please be courteous to other patrons and DO NOT BLOCK THE ENTRANCE. Review the routes before Saturday and print or memorize the map & turn-by-turn directions if you are not familiar with the streets.
There are two water stops: one in Washington Park, and the other at Oak Ridge Cemetery. The restrooms in Washington Park and at the Nelson Center in Lincoln Park are open if you need a mid-run break.
In the spirit of conservation, please try to reuse your water stop cup, or bring your own water bottle to refill.
All our Saturday runs will be on open roads, please review the RRCA Safety Guidelines, with a few highlights below:
Please abide by the following recommended group run safety rules for open roads:
- use caution and obey traffic signals
- run no more than two people abreast
- when possible, run against traffic on the left side of the road
- run on the sidewalk as traffic volume dictates
- please *no headphones* when running on open roads
- no dogs
Watch out for each other, call out cars, and do not follow other runners blindly through intersections.
Don’t forget to join SRRC and register for LPHM before 02/28, the race fee increases by $10 after that! SRRC members also get a $5 discount, so if you join the club and register for the race early, you will save $15! Between registration fee savings and club socials, membership is more than worth it.
If you’re not sure whether you’re an SRRC member or if you’ve already registered for the race, you can check your registrations on the GMR site:
