2014 Track Clubs and Training Groups

A web page with information on some of the local track/training clubs has been created for runners who are interested in getting in shape for the upcoming season. <Click Here> to visit the web page.

Interested In Local Running News/Events For The Coming Week?

A good place to find out what's happening in the local running world for the following week is the Peak Performers and Friends Weekender, a weekly newsletter the track club sends out every Friday. We post the most recent copy of that email on Friday afternnoon for local runners and visitors to the area who might not be on the mailing list. The link never changes. If you bookmark it you should always be able to find it. We have added a button to the left hand side of the page that will take you to the newsletter.
