Wednesday March 29 - Spring Back to the Start

Route #1

It’s the first Wednesday night of our 2017 Spring quarter! Temps are still kind of mild, it's light until 7ish - it's a great time for an evening run! After crushing The Nasty last week, we will start back at the beginning of our 12 week cycle with Route #1: One Hilly 5(ish)K. (It’s actually not quite a 5K, but just 3 miles. Thus the “ish”) We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine. If you are a run/walker and want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join the Lasty Nasties. This is a great week to invite someone new! If you do, remind them to READ HERE for info on how our Wednesday night runs work. After the run, it should be a gorgeous night to recover with a pint at 3 Crow Bar.

Cup Cleaning Raffle

We will announce our Q1 Cup Cleaning Volunteer Raffle Winner at the run this week! And volunteer sign up/entry for Q2 is open!

Volunteer to help wash the cups!

Everyone that signs up for a week to clean the cups will be entered to win $100 gift card to NRC. The more you volunteer, the more chances you get to win. We will draw a winner at the end of every quarter – so you have a 1-in-12 chance to win if you volunteer, a 2-in-12 chance if you volunteer twice, etc. Big thanks to Schaffer Law Firm for sponsoring this program! Here’s how it works: 1) Sign up on the Google doc. 2) Take the cups home. 3) Wash them. 4) Post a pic on social media showing you washed them and tag our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. 5) Bring the cups back to the run the next week.

Shade Tree Trot

The Shade Tree Trot 5k is a charity race on April 22nd, 2017. It supports the Shade Tree Clinic, Vanderbilt’s student run free clinic for the under-insured of Tennessee.
