Parkrun is my new Church. Sorry, God.

DC's Roosevelt Island Parkrun Turns Seven!

Roosevelt Island Parkrun

I will be serving as Tail Walker this Saturday, arriving at 0830 through to Coffee Hour, after, up on the Rosslyn Plaza. It's every Saturday of the year, starting at 0900 for runners and walkers and slow joggers.

A Free Weekly 5K and a Welcoming Community

Getting a weekly, free, fun, non-judgemental, 5k, for free, is a Unicorn in the DMV. Here's the news straight from TRI Parkrun HQ:

Dear Chris,

What a milestone for our entire parkrun this week - August 27th marks 
the Theodore Roosevelt Island DC parkrun's SEVENTH BIRTHDAY! Since its
inception in 2016, this event has seen more than its fair share of 
tourists, first timers, second timers, volunteers, barkrunners, and more. 
We are excited to see what the next seven years have in store! 
To kick them off with a bang, we would like to invite participants 
to wear any parkrun-themed swag (milestone shirts, classic parkrun 
black or apricot apparel, or any other imaginative interpretation of 
the concept) and we'll take a group photo by the monument. There may 
even be snacks...


After the run we will meet for coffee in Rosslyn, near the Metro station.
Details will be announced at the briefing on event day (if it's warm, 
we'll be outside on the Metro plaza; if it's cold and/or raining, we 
will be at Assembly, above the Metro at 1700 N Moore St.).

The Roosevelt Island parking lot often fills up before 8:30am on parkrun
mornings regardless of season or weather.  If you are driving, we recommend
arriving early or considering pay parking in Rosslyn - and 
walking/biking/transit is always encouraged!

Please come join Roosevelt Island Parkrun this weekend and any Saturday, any time in the future!
