FLRC Group Run in Dryden Saturday 5/21 @ 8:30am

The next Saturday FLRC group run is this Saturday, May 21st in Dryden on the Jim Schug Trail. We will meet in the parking lot of the Dryden Lake Park at 8:30am and run at 8:45am.

Details: The FLRC Group Runs are held on the first and third Saturdays of each month. This is an out-and-back run, so you can’t get lost! The standard run is an hour (30 minutes out, 30 minutes back), which allows everyone to start together and end together, and it’s always great to socialize and get to know fellow runners!

For those who are not participating in the FLRC Challenge and not using this run as an effort toward the Jim Schug Trail course, you can find a link to the out and back “course” here. From the parking lot we will take the little off-shoot trail to get to the rail trail, and take a right. From there, run until you reach 30 minutes on your watch, then come back the way you came.

For those of you who will be using it as a Challenge effort, remember, the rules are: cover the ground! You do not have to start at the sign with the code, as long as you cover the entirety of the course in one go.

Please vote in the 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; neither club membership nor registration for the FLRC Challenge is required. If you are not registered for the FLRC Challenge, you must sign the group run waiver. You only need to sign the waiver once for all 2022 group runs, so if you’ve already done so, you’re all set! (Check Webscorer to verify that you signed.)

Let’s try to reduce the number of car trips to fight climate change. Vote if you need a ride or can give one, and post a reply with meetup ideas.

There will be post-run snacks available so please stick around after for socializing and a delicious breakfast.

Last Saturday group run on the Jim Schug Trail on April 2nd! The weather will be a little bit different this time, I think!

I can give a ride to anyone in the Dryden/Freeville/Etna area. But I will have to show up early and leave after everyone else.

I’m planning to run the full Challenge course. I’ll start about 8:30 and head toward Purvis Rd. That should have me finish about the same time as everyone else.

I’m probably holding myself to 6 miles, but it’s always nice to hang out at the start and finish.
