Team Long Run on Sunday, May 22

Long runs are the staple of any running plan. They are awesome in themselves, but are even better in good company.

While Fast Track has always had self-organized long runs among runners of similar paces, this year we'd like to bring everyone together at Team Long Runs!

Location:
Xtra Mile Running
Map & Directions:

Time:
8:00 AM
Team Long Runs will be at a different location each time. We'll schedule them here on our Team's website and post reminders in the members-only Facebook group. Members are encouraged to RSVP on the Team's website.

The group naturally breaks into different pace groups and meets at a nearby coffee shop or restaurant for brunch after the run. Walkers are also welcome!
