October Runner Spotlight!

October's Runner Spotlight is Alison Smith! Alison joined the club in 2012 and is your membership director and volunteer coordinator. You may even spot her on the Army Ten Miler course this weekend! Find out more about Alison by reading the rest of her interview here.


Halloween Happy Hour!

Join us for our Halloween Happy Hour and Costumed Run on October 29, 2015 at Ireland's Four Courts from 6:00 - 9:00 PM.  Come dressed up and ready to celebrate with us! We will also be celebrating the club's Army Ten Miler and Marine Corps Marathon finishers!

We will meet at Ireland's Four Courts in Courthouse at 6:00PM, where we can leave behind our bags and photo IDs before heading out for an easy 3-4 mile run. Come wearing costumes! We will have prizes for the best dressed girl and guy as well as the best "running" costume (this might mean the best running-inspired costume or the best costume that's also most suitable for running in - I haven't decided yet, so plan accordingly). If you aren't interested in running, you should still come for the chicken fingers , costumes, and drink specials!

You can RSVP through the facebook invite here: https://www.facebook.com/events/516414608534151/
