Beginning June 1st through August 5th we will have a ten week selfie version of summer track. Each week you have Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday to get your race on.
We have identified six greenways throughout the Triangle where the distances up to a mile will be marked, or you can find your own location. Pick a place, run your race, take a selfie and enter your results online. You don’t need to be a member to participate. The cost is $0.00. Of course we encourage joining the club to help offset insurance costs.
There will be the typical awards for club members. Iron Man if you get 30 points, with one point per completed event and a maximum of 4 points a week. Full Kirby: run all 50 events. Take the Tour Award: run at least once at all suggested locations.
Follow all posted notices and greenway rules, have fun, and try to run around 7:00 in the evening to keep that hot summer track feeling.
