Group Runs

Saturday Morning Trail Runs

Saturday Pacer Run, 8am at Blue Marsh Stilling Basin, lower lot. Map This location has several options - either direction on the main multi-use trail, flatter trails over toward Grings Mill, or even roads. The club will always have someone leading a roughly 6 mile run, with at least a core group staying together at a comfortable pace that suits the group. But feel free to meet us at 8 and then go longer, faster, a different direction, etc,; it's all good! Happy Trails!

Wednesday Night runs meet at 6:15
