2018 Sunday Fun Run Schedule
The “Sunday Fun Run” Schedule for 2018 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. There’ll be 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 who are FTC members are welcome!
Upon return to the host’s home, there’s coffee, tea and goodies brought by members. It’s a chance to catch up with members you haven’t seen in a while or meet new members. Just bring something to share with the group, i.e. muffins, bagels, coffee cake, juice, fruit, etc. When in doubt, contact the host.
A few days before each run, members on the email list will receive an email with directions, phone numbers, etc. Are you an FTC member and not getting our emails? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
