Group Runs


This Monday (5/28) - Memorial Day Holiday Run! 

We meet at Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center at the Sawmill Parking lot on select holidays at 8:30AM for a group run. ALL PACES are welcome! Walkers, this means you too! We generally run for an hour.

Directions to the Sawmill parking lot: http://goo.gl/5bm9M6
If the lot is full (please do not 'make' your own space!) there is additional parking up on Church Rd, and you can run down to the Sawmill lot via Kohout or Sheerlund/Watershed trails.

**Rt 625 coming from Kenhorst will require a detour due to the bridge construction work. Give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes to follow Mountain View Rd to get to the parking lot**


Wednesday Night runs meet at 6:15

The runs are generally one hour in length, and consist of varying levels of ability and pace. Walkers are also welcome and encouraged!  After the run, we usually gather at a neigborhood eatery.
