Welcome to the second run of the winter training season! 16 weeks to go until the New Jersey Marathon and Half Marathon. Join us this Saturday for a run around Loch Raven Reservoir. This is a beautiful reservoir lake north of Baltimore, and also the city's main source of drinking water. We'll also have our first team breakfast of the season at Claire's place in Mt Vernon. Please RSVP here, the address will be given at the run.

Meet-up

Meet at 8:00 am at Providence Road and Loch Raven Drive. There's a small gravel parking lot that will hold five or six cars. If it's full, there's street parking back up Providence Road. Sign up for carpooling if you need a ride!
