It's the weekend - Have some fun!

We had a great time at the Undie Mile tonight! - Congrats to one of our newest members Joachim as he won the Fastest Male Title in a time of 5:31 under the cover of darkness.   Congrats are also in order for Cassy as she defended her 2014 championship by finishing in 6:09!

Cassy trying to be a bit taller... no worries about your height Cassy, you can run when you're cold! 

Joachim & Cassy... Champions! 

In addition to declaring fastest cold weather runners, we had a competition for Best Undies! - We found an impartial set of judges and after our contestants made the rounds the judges gave great thought and selected the skimpiest! Winners are pictured below along with the judges who are all guilty of judging! How dare they!

  • It's that time again for a little bowling & beer!

  • A nice little prize for the Champion Bowler will be awarded.
  • COST WILL BE $10.00 AT THE DOOR!!!
  • The set-up will be just a bit different this year as Sandbaggers is still in the construction phase with the kitchen. The cost this year is just for the bowling at $10. All beer, wine, mixed drinks, soda and frozen pizzas will be available for you to purchase. We may also bring in some small snacks, chips, etc. (no drinks) since their kitchen is not complete. If you plan on bringing some snacks etc, please provide any plates, bowls and utensils too for your snack.

Dec 19th 6pm:  Caroling on the Run! This is a Monday Night event and a highlight for many members! 
  • We ask that you bring a cash donation of any amount you are comfortable with.  In the past most donations have been in the range of 10-30 dollars.  
  • Do not worry about how much you can donate... it's a general pot, we are not asking for a minimum donation, nor are we tracking what any one individual contributed.  Your generosity and spirit of giving already shows by putting yourself into such a unique situation... singing to strangers and doing something nice! 
  • We''ll run to 2-3 restaurants, surprise the customers and staff with 2 songs and then before we leave, we'll buy some meals for some of the customers in the restaurant.  - super fun... then off to the next stop! 
  • Do not worry about how fast you are... we make sure we all arrive before we go in.  Walkers take an alternate route from runners, and we all arrive roughly the same time and go in as a team.
