Sunday Skunkday group run on Sunday, 2/19 at 8:30 AM at Barton Hall

This Sunday, you have two choices for FLRC events: our indoor track meet or the weekly Sunday Skunkday run. (You could even do both if you wanted to warm up with the Sunday Skunkday run and then come back to race the mile—just make sure to register for the track meet ahead of time since there’s no day-of-meet registration.) Last week’s group was 28 runners strong!

The only catch is that I may be busy with final preparations for the track meet, the first race of which starts at 9 AM. So meet as usual inside the front doors of Barton Hall (facing Teagle Hall, where the Skunk 10K starts) at 8:30 AM. I’ll try to come over to say hello, but if I’m overwhelmed, you all know how to introduce yourselves and break up into rough pace groups.

At 8:45 AM, we’ll split up into rough pace and distance groups and run the Skunk course, more or less. You can go as long or short as you want, and it’s fine to deviate from the course for different loops and distances. Here are some possibilities:

As always, everyone is welcome, even if you’re not an FLRC member or planning to participate in this year’s Skunkadelic-themed Skunk Cabbage Classic. Regardless, everyone must sign the FLRC Training Programs waiver once for 2023.

Unless there’s a big Cornell event, there’s usually plenty of free (on Sunday) parking in the Crescent Lot east of Schoellkopf Stadium or in Cornell’s parking garage.

Any questions, just ask!

Although I signed up for the shortish group run, I’m a maybe. I have a full-day event on Saturday so it depends how I feel Sunday morning. :slight_smile:

I’m wondering how many runners have tended to cover the full 13 miles… I’d love to come run but without directions in RunGo, I’m wondering if I’ll potentially end up solo and should plan to carry a map. Thanks!

@kuwanna-dyerpietras if you click on “show results” under the polls, it will show those who voted (click on the avatar to show a pop up of the name). Looks like Caitlin and Gerritt are intending to cover the full 13 tomorrow. I think you and Caitlin have a pretty similar pace, and you are both a delight to be with, so it could be a great match!
