Announcement - Chesterwoods

I'm excited to announce: Team R.E.D. is taking on ownership of the Chesterwoods Trail Races.  As many of you know, Jim Mason created and directed that race for many years... he has officially resigned as race director and the Track Club has graciously offered Team R.E.D. the opportunity to take the event forward.

Mason, along with the South East Minnesota Trail Runners, are very much part of this team to make sure we maintain the integrity of the Trail Races!  It's going to be a lot of fun!

Mark your calendars as the race is the traditional 1st Saturday of June - June 4th in fact.  Registration will open very soon! Along with that, volunteer opportunities will also be available soon - Distances will remain the same as in the past:  5K, 10 Mile & 50K.   -   Stay tuned for more information.

Wednesday (tonight) 6pm:  Team R.E.D. is at the Bears Den - the streets are clear in Byron and we'll have routes of 3, 4 or 6 miles awaiting us!  Back to the Den for the post run or walk!
Friday 9am:  Secret training run from the RAC.  Join the fun and get some miles to start the year right. The distance is however long it takes to run off the sins of New Years Eve parties!
Saturday 10am:  The Polar Bear 5K Prediction Run - this is a race in which anyone can win and anyone can be disqualified! - The winner is the person who most closely predicts their finish time without running faster than predicted.  The Rochester Track Club hosts the event and will serve a light lunch afterwards! - Join the fun!
Sunday 8am:  I anticipate an Off Season Striders group run - check back for details.
Sunday 1pm:  Snowshoe at Oxbow Park! - Meet at the 1st Bridge (2nd parking lot on your left as you enter the park). - Bring something to sip on during the snowshoe.... it'll keep you warmer!
Monday 6pm:  The Monday Maniacs are heading back to Beetles Bar & Grill.  During last weeks alledged snowstorm, only one person showed up... we hope to see increased attendance this week!  Join the fun and go for a downtown run!
Tuesday 6pm: TerraLoco is hosting their weekly 5K along with a great guest speaker. Ruth Brennan Morrey will be there to talk Resolutions!  - Team R.E.D. and some of the other area groups will have a booth, so stop on by!
Tuesday 6:15pm:  The Tuesday Trail Crew is heading to Eastwood Park in Rochester.  This is a fun place to twist and turn the night away!  Bring your snow shoes and enjoy!
Thursday 6pm: Team R.E.D. heads to the Bears Den in Byron for our first Thursday night of the year!  Bring on 2016 and let's have some fitness and fun!
