  • The National Park Service will close Rock Creek Park’s Beach Drive, between Joyce Road and the Maryland state line, for roughly a year starting in mid-July. At the same time, Beach Drive will be reopened between Broad Branch Road and Joyce Road. The closure will include the paved path alongside Beach between Joyce Road and Bingham Drive and the Valley Trail between Joyce Road and Sherill Drive. Wise Road will remain open until work crews reach it.
  • The closure will continue to disrupt traditional long run routes that make use of Beach Drive. Here are some alternative loops.

 

  • General registration for the Army Ten-Miler opens Wednesday, May 23
  • The Runners Connect podcast featured Montgomery County-based coaches Julie Sapper and Lisa Reichmann. Reichmann was also on the Diz Runs podcast.
