The Race Season is here!

Wow... so many great races at Door County, Soldiers Field, Stewartville, Tacomo, and wherever you might have been!   -- Tapering has started for Med City... long runs are peaking for Grandmas...  -- Marathon and Half Marathoners are prepping right now for Lake Wobegone & Fargo and Green Bay!

With all this going on... don't forget about the week night opportunities to connect, train, recover, taper, press hard.. whatever you like!

  • Tuesday 5:30pm:  The track crew is hitting soldiers field, as a tune up for the TC 1 Mile!   It's a 1 mile time trial... followed by your choice of 400M repeats or hill repeats.  You can't go wrong with your pick, as they both will simply make you better!  
  • Tuesday 6pm:  TerraLoco continues the 5K's for local charities.. this week is the Grey Ribbon Run for Brain Tumor Awareness.  Just $5 and a chance to win some great prizes!  
  • Tuesday 6:30pm Carpool at 6pm:  The Trail crew is going to Camp!  Camp Victory!  The run will start at 6:30pm but if you want to carpool meet at Shopko North to either ride along, or follow others.  This location is a fun one, the team has always enjoyed it! 
  • Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. is heading to Rochester for some downtown running. Meet at the back of Brothers Bar & Grill for the route talk, then out we go!  
  • Saturday 7:15am:  The Marathon & Half Marathon training class meets at the RAC for the long run... bring 1 buck to help cover the cost of Gatorade / bananas / treats..  (be sure to thank all the volunteers! )

  • Saturday 10am:  Team R.E.D. member Sarah S is hosting the 3rd Annual VAD Run!  Why am I excited about this?  Well, #1 it's for a great cause she is passionate about, and #2 Tom O once held the course record!    See details at the following link and get involved.
  • Sunday 8am:  Trail Run at Oxbow... meet at the 1st Bridge.  If you've not tried trail running, give it a shot!
