Join us for Wine & Dine Wednesday – February 27th

Come and celebrate our one year anniversary “Wine and Dine” fun run. Hope all can make it out for some good running, fellowship, and wine afterwards. The weather will be chilly, but dry. Still good for running, but do wear reflective gear or headlights AND some PGRC paraphernalia. The route is at the end of this email, but may be adjusted.

We’ll meet at Riverdale Towne Center Market at 7:00 pm for an easy loop run (route below) AND enjoy some wine afterwards at the market. BTW, their wine is on tap so bring your wine card if you bought one before or money for your wine.

The Towne Center Market isn’t a bar that serves food, but you can order food like pizza and sandwiches from next door  – Dumm’s Pizza.  It is literally a few steps  from Towne Center, and they deliver food to the market so bring some money for pizza.

Bring a friend or — better yet — a former PGRC’er!  Let’s get our former members together, and what better way than over a glass of wine!

Riverdale Towne Center Market is located at:
4705 Queensbury Rd
Riverdale Park, MD 20737
(301) 277-9271

Hope to see everyone  February 27th 7:00 pm. 

Running Route (2 1/2 – 3-ish miles):

From the Town Market, start on Queensbury Rd. Continue running on Queensbury passing the Rite Aid and continuing to 39th St/place. Make a left here. Run to Oliver Street and make a right onto Oliver. Continue on Oliver making a right onto Queens Chapel Road. Continue on Queens Chapel road and then make a right onto Queensbury, finishing at the market.
