Oktoberfest - September 24
The Oktoberfest is a benefit race for Bean's Cafe and the Brother Francis Shelter. The 2015 runs raised $4100. Race HQ is in the basement of the 49th State Brewing Company, the old Snow Goose Restaurant. Race time is 9:00 am. We will be using the same 5K and 10K out and back courses that we used last year along the Coastal Trail. There will also be an 1/4 mile kid's fun run. Runners in costume be given a one minute head start. Chip timing. Visit the event web page for more information and link to o line registration
Thirty-nine racers participated in the 2016 ARC masters 5K and 10K runs on this warm and sunny July 13th evening. Thanks goes out to our race directors Jake and Brynn Moe and their crew of volunteers for putting on another successful Master's run. Thanks too goes out to the masters club members who joined us this evening. Congratulations everyone!
The running club's only cross country fun run on the calendar and our webmaster's favorite, the Boondocks Breakaway 5K and Kids 2.5K, is this Sunday, July 10. The scenic course follows the Mize loop trail in beautiful Kincaid park. We meet at 10:00 am in the Kincaid Chalet. Race time is at 11:00 am.
There is no entry fee; the race is open to club members only. Not a member? Not a problem.Visit the club's membership web page for information on membership and link to the sign up page.
