FLRC Challenge Group Run on the Tortoise & Hare Course NEXT Saturday 6/5 at 8:30 AM

FLRC Challenge Group Runs continue! To help introduce people to the FLRC Challenge and help those already in the Challenge with their efforts, we’ll be moving them around to various FLRC Challenge courses.

June 5th’s FLRC Challenge run will be on the Tortoise & Hare course, hosted by Heather Cobb. This 5.4-mile course takes place at Buttermilk Falls State Park. There is paid parking within the park, or you can park at one of the businesses slightly closer to Ithaca on Elmira Road. We’ll meet on the bridge by the falls at 8:30 AM and start running at 8:45 AM.

This will be a great practice run to prepare you for the June 6th in-person Tortoise & Hare Trail Run! So if you’re wanting to run the race but feeling some trepidation, this is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the course. Register here. If you don’t want to completely destroy yourself before the race, you can hang out with me in the back while I sweep, with the average pace being between 14-20 minute miles!

Everyone is welcome, regardless of age, ability, pace, or anything else. This is a free activity, neither club membership nor registration for the FLRC Challenge is required, but if you are not signed up for the FLRC Challenge, you must sign an online waiver . You only need to sign this waiver once for all 2021 group runs.

Unless you’re fully vaccinated (2 weeks post-second shot for Moderna/Pfizer and post-shot for J&J), please bring a mask for wearing whenever you’re not running.

If you have questions, or if you might be interested in volunteering as a greeter/host for future runs, contact FLRC Group Run director Heather Cobb at cobb.heather.m@gmail.com.
