Easter Skunkday run on March 31 at 8:30 AM at Barton & SKUNK COURSE MARSHALS NEEDED!

It’s our final Sunday Skunkday run, and we’ll be celebrating Easter Skunkday! Hopping is not necessary, but bonus points for anyone who wears ears.

On a more serious note, I desperately need course marshals for the race on April 7. Most of the positions will have very little traffic, but it’s important to have people at these intersections to direct runners and warn drivers. Please sign up to volunteer or ask your friends or family members to sign up! Course marshals will get safety vests and flags (and free Total Eclipse of the Skunk T-shirts), along with pre-race details and training. And most course marshals get to see all the runners twice!

Back at the group run… For those who aren’t celebrating the holiday with their families (a perfectly good excuse), we’ll meet inside the front doors of Barton Hall (facing Teagle Hall, where Skunk starts) at 8:30 AM. At 8:45 AM, we’ll do some introductions, split up into pace groups, take a group picture, and then run the Skunk course, more or less. Feel free to choose an alternative loop, too.

Everyone is welcome, even if you’re not an FLRC member or planning to run Skunk. Regardless, you must sign the FLRC Training Programs waiver once for 2024.

Although the Barton bathrooms will be open, I can’t guarantee that you can leave stuff inside the building during the run — I might have to re-lock the doors after we head out.

Unless there’s a big Cornell event, there’s usually plenty of free (on Sunday) parking in the Crescent Lot east of Schoellkopf Stadium or in Cornell’s parking garage.

Any questions, just ask. See you Sunday!

And that’s a wrap on Sunday Skunkday runs for 2024! Easter and Cornell’s spring break lured some people away, but we still had 24 people showing up. No one wore ears, but @Jamie gets points for giving @caitlin-loehr some. :slight_smile:

Next weekend is Skunk Cabbage, of course, and the week after that, @heathercobb3 will undoubtedly have some other group-run fun for everyone.
