So you want to run long, two days after eight inches of snow

Generally, the best bets will be, once again, to stick to Beach Drive, Hains Point, the Custis Trail and parts of the Capital Crescent Trail. Word is that the Montgomery County section is clear, but I’ve heard nothing about the D.C. section.

I’ve taken most of the unconfirmed paths off the map. Comment or tweet @RunWashington if you have something to report.

The color coding:

  • Green- basically good to go
  • Yellow-cleared but reportedly not ideal or open to limited traffic
  • Red- no idea, but recent history suggested it might be clear

Keep in mind between when this information was reported and Saturday morning, melting snow and ice may refreeze and become more of a clipping hazard. These are merely suggestions for the most opportune places to run.
