The ”Sunday Fun Run” Schedule for 2014 is out. These events are a great way to meet other FTC members and run in different areas other than your usual route. They also help get you through the winter months.
Each Sunday we meet a member’s house on the list at 8:30 am. You will find runners or groups going in different directions who you can join up with. Usually routes are mapped out, or just follow the crowd for the distance you would like to do that day. All runners and walkers are welcome.
Not only do you join a great group, you join an organization that gives back to the community.
$20 for Individual Membership
$25 for Family Membership
$10 for Youth Membership (under 18)
Our membership year runs from January 1 to December 31.
If you need your status verified, please email Doris Beatty.

The track workouts will persist, as ever, regardless of weather. You never have to worry about being the only crazy person! There will always be at least one other person running around on an oval track all winter long! The numbers have actually been good of late, even in the cold. Bundle up!
There are two workout groups to choose from: The first is a group appropriate for people who are beginners, have a fear of track workouts, are recovering from injury and run/walkers. This group should warm up and be ready for 5:30 pm. The workout overlaps with the 6 pm group and is a 40-minute group.
The 6 pm group is a one hour group and those participants should be ready to go at 6:00. (more…)
