Team Long Run on Sunday, August 14

Team_Long_RunLogin or become a member to see who is attending this event!
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 are bringing everyone together at Team Long Runs!
 
Location:
Busse Woods cul-de-sac
Map & Directions:
Time:
7:30 AM
Team Long Runs are at a different location each time. We 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!
