Lots of Stuff!

Team R.E.D. Membership and Renewal Drive kicks off at the Beer Mile on Thursday Evening!  The renewal drive will run through the end of August  - Remember, if you became a member in 2016 you are not due for renewal until next year, however, if your membership began in 2015 or earlier, you are due to renew! 
  • New members pay just $20 and receive a Team R.E.D. Tee, along with a Team R.E.D. Duffel Bag! 
  • Renewing members pay just $10 and receive a Team R.E.D. Duffel Bag!
  • You can register or renew online at  or in person. However, if you pay with cash, always pay Wendy not Tom! - Wendy is the smarter O'Leary.
Yours with renewal! Great for race day!

Shane is saving his money so he can renew and score one of these great duffels!

Other events going on 

Wednesday 6pm:  Get your speed on the track in Byron! The session provides a chance to get faster, and test yourself - we typically discuss a workout during the warmup and then get after it.  If you don't like the workout that was selected, you can always do your own thing.  
Saturday 7am:  The long run from the RAC is always a great option.  The run is supported with Aid stations and they simply ask for $1 per week to help stock the stations. This weeks routes are 15.5 nd 7.5 miles respectively.  Also, please consider volunteering at an aid station from time to time, it's pretty fun and gets you out of a long run! 
Sunday 8am:  Off Season Striders are heading to Dunn Bros North for a great morning of running, chatting and coffee'ing! This is a great group and everyone is able to pick their own mileage, often it's in the range of 5-8 miles.  
Wednesday July 20th: Torchlight 5K - This is a fun, fast course! - Starts at the Bascillica, runs along the Torchlight parade route and finishes crossing the fantastic Stone Arch bridge near the Guthrie Theatre.  At the finish line, Live Music and Free Beer! 
  • USATF Minnesota 5k Championship- Torchlight 5k
    • Race Registration is $30 until race day. (A discount of $10-$15 adult pricing.)
    • No discount code necessary, register for the USATF 5K Championship in order to be scored and timed in that category - MUST have a USATF membership # and associate with Team R.E.D.
    • Receive a preferred start!
    • If 25 people register and chip in $25 each - we can charter a bus!  If 30 register the cost drops to $20 a head! 

I forgot to post this previously, so better late then never, right?  A couple of great cakes have shown up at the Team R.E.D. home host nights! - This one showed up at the Paradise home! I hope i'm right on this, but I think Bob is the creative one who brought it!

A special thanks goes out to all of our Home Hosts! Those are always great nights!
