Hey members and non members that want to join us. So many good running options this weekend that wanted to share them all with you. The regularly posted runs are listed below. All of them are really good options so read thru them and see if any fit your desires.

UNCC 5k - go racers!!! Take some pictures please too and share them with us ( )

Sat 6:15am and 7am pickups Saturday at Dowd Y back porch. Contact 7-7:30 pace...early folks going 20 miles. Later folks 13-15 miles. Good crew of fast ladies on this one and a few fellas tagging along for the ride.

Sat 8:15a from Old Bell entrance of McAlpine - if you want to hang with the fastest crew in town (other than the folks racing at UNCC 5k), come give these guys a try.
