Every 4 years, Free, Fun and Fast ! The Leap Year Dash !
On Friday, February 29th, 2008, join the DCRRC at 12:00 noon for their Quaddrenniel “Leap Year 3km.” This FREE, FUN and FAST (just under 2 miles) event presents the rare opportunity to set an age group, gender, Clydesdale or other record that cannot be broken for years !
That’s right, just like the monthly noontime 3km. around the Jefferson Memorial tidal basin, the DCRRC (703-241-0395 for recorded event messages) has a unique, FREE event lined up for the leap year day. Noon, Friday, February 29th, at the Roosevelt Memorial Tourmobile stop and Ohio Drive , SW (where many big D.C. races start/finish) is the place to be. This is an excellent time trial opportunity. Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau hopes to be there to see where his winter fitness is (or is not !). Some hardy souls may want to bring their bikes and ride the Hains Point Course in order to get in a “Brick Workout.” Unfortunately, the “Awakening” sculpture will not be there any more. There are, however, runners of all abilities expected for this once-in-4-year event, just as is the case for the 3rd Wednesday of the month runs, which are year round.
