Some Words from the Management

January is coming to an end and with that we're so much closer to long days and warmer weather. We're ready for whatever these next wintery months throw at us so come run through it with us.

We'll be ending our run at Local 44 Bottle Shop this week!

Donor Dash -  Sunday, April 15

Since 1996, Gift of Life Donor Program, together with their dedicated volunteers, has hosted the Donor Dash to promote organ and tissue donation.  The Dash celebrates the life-saving power of donation and honors all of the donors who give others a second chance at life.  
The popular annual event, which attracts more than 12,000 people from throughout the tristate region, raises essential funds to educate the community about the need for more people to register as organ and tissue donors. 

26x1 Marathon Relay Challenge -  Saturday, May 19

Everyone's favorite team marathon relay is coming up again (in like 4 months, but still)! Get yourself registered! Time is running out (it's not, you have plenty of time)!

All funds raised go to the Woodlands, because they're the best and they're hosting the event again this year!

Run Fest - Sunday, June 3rd

You may have heard of Run Fest or maybe you know it by its old name ODDyssey Half Marathon. Either way, you should know that it's fricken awesome and that you need to get your ass on our team. We are currently leading with largest team...probably because it's December and the race is in June. But regardless! We're super hype! We want you there! There will be costumes! There will be lotsa fun running! And there will be a beer garden with a party tent at the end!
