Wednesday Jan 3 - Hello 2018! Lots of info this week!
Route #1 and Pint Night!
It's the first Wednesday night of 2018! We will start at the beginning of our 12 week cycle with Route #1: One Hilly 5(ish)K. This week is a great week to join us for the first time, to re-join us, and/or to invite someone new! The run is 'only' 3 miles - and immediately after the run Nashville Running Company is hosting their monthly pint night! Try on our new hoodie while you're there and then order yours online before the deadline this weekend (see more details below).
We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group. Remember to wear something that creates and/or reflects light.
