We’re coming up on the final weekend of the FLRC Challenge, and our last group run will help those who want company on the 13.1-mile Dryden Lake Lollipop course, starting and finishing in Freeville. If we’re lucky, Toad’s will be open for ice cream, but we’ll have watermelon and bagels anyway.
A quick note. Group Run director Heather Cobb is looking for volunteers to host more group runs once the Challenge is over. Hosting merely means figuring out a course and greeting people at the start—you don’t need to run at the front and Heather will coordinate the post here. Contact Heather for details or sign up in Helper Helper for your desired weekend (the specific day and time is somewhat negotiable).
We’ll meet at the Freeville Town Hall at 8:30 AM. After the usual milling, introductions, visits to the FLRC-sponsored porta-potty, and group photo, we’ll start running the course around 8:45 AM. We’ll also have post-run snacks—make sure to vote in the pace poll so we can bring enough. And please do vote! Voting in the pace poll helps newcomers get a sense of who else will be running their pace. We always have a wide range of runners, so you’ll generally find someone to run with.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of age, ability, pace, or anything else. This is a free activity, and while FLRC membership and FLRC Challenge participation are encouraged, neither is required. If you’re not running the Challenge, please sign the FLRC Training Programs waiver. You only need to sign once for all 2023 group runs, so if you’ve already done so, you’re all set—check here.)
