August, Coming in Hot

A Message from the President:

Hi everyone... Thank you to everyone able to attend our first KS Annual Picnic since 2019.  It was great to get back to our tradition. We are getting ready to enter fall racing season; I'm reminded of how lucky we are to be back to running races again.  Almost all races are now back in full force.  I'm excited to see everyone out there doing what they love! Strides 'n Hops and Track Tuesdays continue for a limited time. Be sure to get out there and enjoy the opportunity. Our Adopt-a-Mile at MCM is back and I'm so excited we will be out there supporting a strong local running tradition.  Please come out and join us if your available!

Until we run again,

What is a Fun Fact About You? About two years ago, while living in beautiful Hawaii (Oahu), I woke up one morning and ran a Half-Marathon. No preparation or planning, I just had what I refer to as a "Forrest Gump" moment. 

Thanks for introducing yourself, Anthony!!
Calling All Volunteers

Marine Corps Marathon is back!
October 30, 2021 at 8am-11am

 We've been invited to Adopt Mile 6 of the 47th Marine Corps Marathon Course! We need a minimum of 18 people to give up a few hours of their day on the 30th for course cleanup. 
RSVP to volunteer here.
 It's a great opportunity to support the running community and our fellow Marine Corps Marathoners.
The club receives a very helpful financial contribution for the volunteering!
August Board Meeting

It's that time again.  We are planning to have the next board meeting on Wednesday, August 10th at 6:30pm. FB event here.

All members are welcome to join board meetings! The board will likely meet virtually. There is a virtual link in the FB invite to join.
Remember the upcoming run clinic. FB event here.
Track Tuesdays Continue!

Just a few more weeks of track workouts left!  Get 'em while you can!!
Tuesdays at 6:30 pm at Hayfield Secondary School. 
This year we are extending the season a bit and working around Coach Christie's schedule.  We plan to wrap up track workouts mid-September. 

All levels and training requirements welcome!  Coach Christie can modify the workout to fit individual goals, just ask.

These workouts get very toasty, as do most in the summer, so be sure to hydrate and scale if necessary.  
Here is an article from RRCA with helpful tips on running in the heat. 

Check Facebook for an official event with workout details. 

We are still running our way through local breweries!  Please come join us for a beautiful scenic run and a hoppy beverage after.  Every other Thursday run rotates through local breweries until early September.  

So come on out and come thirsty!!
Remaining schedule: 
  • August 11th: Lost Boy Cider
  • August 25th: Port City
  • September 8th: Green Turtle
Depending on participation, we will try and work in beer runs after our Strides 'n Hops season. Let us know what you think!!

These are informal runs and not affiliated with the brewery.


Fall races are coming, which is always SUPER exciting!!  If you are planning to run any races in the fall be sure to drop a comment on the Featured announcement 

We like to keep track of each other's races for moral support, information sharing, and race day coordination (if there are a few people doing a particular race).  Let our community know!
Stay in the loop. Use our Google Calendar to keep track of run details and other events. 

We've had a stormy couple of months and hurricane season hasn't even begun!  Please pay attention to FB posts in case there are cancellations.

Feel free to schedule impromptu runs on your own or through Facebook.

Throughout the summer Tuesday track days will be added to the calendar and Thursdays will rotate to include local breweries.
