It’s time for the FLRC Challenge, a great excuse to gather for a group run and explore the area. Sign up for the Challenge today!
We’ll be meeting in the Cornell Botanic Gardens at 8:30 AM to run the new 5.2-mile Cornell Scenic Circuit course (check the course page for a Google Map pin and RunGo directions). After the usual milling, introductions, and explanation of Challenge timing (download the Webscorer app!), we’ll aim to start around 8:45 AM. You can park at the start and other spots as shown.
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.

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.)

If you have questions or are interested in volunteering as a greeter/host for similar group runs, contact FLRC Group Run director Heather Cobb (firstname.lastname@example.org). See you Saturday!
