Week Ahead... Check it out!

Keep it rolling.. spring is just around the corner!  Check out all the group opportunities coming up this week!
  • Saturday 7:15am:  The Marathon & Half Marathon Training runs start from the Rochester Athletic Club aka RAC.   You do not need to be a member of the training class, nor do you have to be a member of the RAC.  In fact, you don't have to be a member of any club to join these group runs.  Please bring $1 donation each week to help cover the cost of Gatorade & Bananas provided at aid stations on these long runs.   
    • Saturday 6:15am:  Pre-loading  This first run of the training plan is about 8 miles.. so if you'd like to get more, you can join a group that is pre-Loading.  They are starting from the RAC at 6:15am to get a little extra mileage and will circle back to the RAC to join the rest of the group. 
    • Lin is always seeking volunteers for the water stops that support these group runs, so if you, or a family member are interested in volunteering please do so.. kids can help too (they really like doing things like waterstops!)  -- If you're available, please contact Lin at   
      • If we don't have enough volunteers there is a high likelihood we'll be running endless loops around the RAC.
  • Sunday 8am:  The Off Season Striders are heading to Panera South.  There's great access to the trail, and away we go!  NOTE: There are a few people pre-loading for this run too.  They will start at 7am and come back to meet the 8am crew. 
  • Monday 6pm:  Monday Maniacs are heading to Wild Bills for a run, walk or jog. We'll have someone available for all paces... Can't make it at 6pm.. come around 7pm and join us for the social.
  • Tuesday 5:30pm:  Team R.E.D. heads for the hills!  Meet at the Edina Realty parking lot near TJ Maxx and enjoy the hill repeats.
  • Tuesday 6:15pm:  The Trail Crew is heading to Bill Barnacle Woodland.  This is a fun place to snowshoe, hike or run - this weeks options are likely snowshoe or hike!   Meet at the BP in Marion (the township of Marion, located on Hwy 52 and just south of I-90).   A carpool / caravan will head to the woodland from there, as the parking may be limited at Bill Barnacle in the winter time. 
  • Wednesday - Ash Wednesday - No scheduled workout unless someone contacts me to say they'd like to lead one. 
    • We do have a new location for the Progressive Runs - so they will return. 
  • Thursday 6am:  Speed work on the track at the RCTC field house! Get your speed on, and learn from the master of speed!
  • Thursday 6pm:  Team R.E.D. heads to the Bears Den in Byron.  Expect to hear options of 3, 4 or 6 miles and pick your distance!   Come check out the newly decorated Team R.E.D. corner, now complete with the Beer Mile Champions, Bucket Award Winners, Tee Shirts and Melby!
