Saturday Group Run – April/May 2017

Lace Up, and put a little “SPRING” in your stride!

The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and flowers are in bloom. The welcomed signs of spring give us an opportunity to hit the road and enjoy our Saturday group runs even more. As we enter into the first full month of spring, our 3 & 6 mile course will change the first Saturday in April. See the links below for full details on our new routes:

3 Mile Route                    6 Mile Route

Group runs begin and end in the parking lot of the Bottle Works in downtown Athens, GA. Current start time is 8:00PM every Saturday. Thank you to Hendershot’s Coffee for their continued support of the Athens Road Runners.
