FLRC Challenge group run on Sunday, 5/26 at 8:30 AM the Lab of Ornithology (Duck Trails)

Time for another FLRC Challenge group run! This week’s Duck Trails group run will be another easy introduction to what it’s like to run a course and time yourself in the Webscorer app—perfect for those who haven’t yet gotten on the leaderboard. Since the course is only 2.7 and easy, I strongly suspect a lot of people will want to run it twice.

Neither FLRC membership nor FLRC Challenge participation is required for this group run, but we’re confident you’ll sign up once you hear from others how much fun the Challenge is. This photo of happy runners is from a similar Challenge group run last year.

We’ll meet near the starting point of the Duck Trails course at 8:30 AM (check the course page for driving directions). After the usual milling, introductions, and explanation of how to time Challenge runs (make sure to download the Webscorer app and log in using your Webscorer account at home), we’ll aim to start around 8:45 AM. There will be some snacks for post-run socializing.

Please vote in the pace poll below so others can 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.

A smaller but highly amiable group today for a nice outing on Duck Trails. @JesseKoennecke did it twice, @Stephanie_Mulinos and Caroline Rasmussen started early, and @sryan004 just picked up his shirt while babying his hip.
