CRC Birthday Tequila 400m Details

Charlotte Running Club turns 3 years old on Saturday May 5, 2012. We are very proud of our growth and strength as a club in just 3 years. We celebrate the club birthday each year with the Tequila 400m which ties in of course to Cinco de Mayo. When we founded the club in 2009, we were doing a 400m workout at JCSU in an massive (in fact kind of dangerous) thunderstorm. I had told the group on our last 400m, we take a shot of Tequila and then run an all out 400m. We did and the tradition lives on! Here is the original crew.
The last two years, we have moved the race to Dilworth Neighborhood Grille with shots, cash awards and then a marked course on Baxter street. Mr. Thomas Eggar has smoked us all two years in a row and is our current world record holder. This year, we are making a few modifications to the event. We hope to see as many of you as possible whether your members or not. Even if you don't want to "race", come celebrate and cheer!
