FLRC Challenge Group Run on the Tortoise & Hare Course Saturday 8/7 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.

August 7th’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.

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.

There will be post-run snacks, so please stick around after for socializing and eating a delicious breakfast. Please bring a cup for a beverage. (Snacks can also be made-to-go, so if you’re someone who doesn’t like to eat right after running, you are welcome to take it with you for later.)

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.

12 runners got together to run the Tortoise and Hare course this morning (10 pictured, @mclark was the photographer, and @aaronking32 joined us as we hit that long uphill). It was a beautiful day, and we all socialized while enjoying bagels and orange juice afterwards. Thank you for coming out and hope to see you again!

Sweepers sweeping!
