They’re here! Patriotic ARR shirts!

Stop by Fleet Feet Athens in Five Points this afternoon or tomorrow (Friday) to pick up your pre-ordered patriotic shirts! Those not picked up in the store will be brought to the Hendershot’s parking for pickup *before* Saturday’s group run, after which they will be back at Fleet Feet for pickup through the weekend and July 4th holiday.

Global Running Day Picnic – this Wednesday!

This Wednesday, June 7, is Global Running Day! To celebrate, we are having our annual potluck picnic! We have reserved shelter 2 at Memorial Park beginning at 5:30. We will go for a 3-mile run at ~6 PM. Afterward we will eat, drink (water and sports drinks provided), and celebrate the fellowship of running! Please bring a covered dish to share with the group.

See y’all there!

NEW Saturday routes for summer!

Happy National Doughnut Day, y’all! Make sure you carb up for our run tomorrow! We will meet at 7:15 AM in the Bottleworks parking lot behind Hendershot’s to run our *NEW* 3 and 6 mile routes. Come a few minutes early for announcements and to get maps of the new routes – they have lots of water fountain access for summer hydration. Stick around after for conversation and complimentary coffee from Hendershot’s (be sure to tip your barista!).

See y’all tomorrow!

Trail Series: Cook’s Trail

2017 Athens Road Runner Trail Series: Part 3

This month’s run will take place on Wednesday, May 31st.  We will run on the newly reopened Cook’s Trail, beginning at the Sandy Creek Nature Center (205 Old Commerce Rd, Athens, GA 30607).  The group will do up to 6 miles, but since it’s an out-and-back path, you can run any distance you are comfortable with. We will meet at the Nature Center and runners will take off around 6:00 PM.  We hope to see you there!

May 20: Marigold 10K – No Saturday Group Run

We will not have an organized group run this Saturday. We will all be at Pittard Park in Winterville for the Marigold 10k! Marigold is organized by our club and is a flat and fast USTAF certified Peachtree qualifier.

There are still multiple opportunities to register for this awesome race. Packet Pickup is at Fleet Feet Sports Athens TODAY (Friday, May 19), from 4:00-7:00pm. You can register for the race during that time! If you stop by Fleet Feet on Friday to register or pick up your bib early, you can also enter the raffle drawing! We will be drawing 3 names to receive a $50 Fleet Feet gift card – winners will be announced on Saturday after the race!
We will also have race day registration starting at 6:30am at Pittard Park at the picnic pavilion.

Hope to see you all racing, volunteering, and cheering on our participants!
