Trails are Rockin'!

The Tuesday Trail crew got out in great numbers at Carly State Park! - If you've never joined a Tuesday gathering, you should consider!

Tuesday Trail Crew
Here's what coming up next... sunshine! 

  • Wednesday 6pm:  Join us on the track in Byron.  We start the workout at 6pm, so plan your arrival to give yourself enough time for warming up.  On the track, we typically have one workout planned, and if that doesn't fit what you had in mind, you can certainly do your own thing and you'll still have the vibe of the group to help push you. 
    • This weeks track workout is a 3 mile tempo run.  Don't know how fast you should tempo? We'll help you calculate a good pace for you. 
  • Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. heads to the Bears Den in Byron. On Thursdays we always offer multiple distances, you pick the one that fits you, or do your own thing!  Runners and Walkers of all paces are welcome! 
  • Saturday 7:15am:  The Marathon & Half Marathon training runs continue from the RAC.  You don't have to be a member of any local running clubs to join, just bring $1 to help support the aid stations provided along the way.  
    • This week's route is just shy of 21 miles for the Full Marathoners .. and a bit over 9 for the Half marathoners.   Route for the full can be found at the following link.
