7th Annual Race for Charity
On April 23rd, we will be holding our 7th Annual Race for Charity. An event attracting 300+ participants that benefits She’s the First, an organization dedicated to supporting girls in low-income countries, who will be the first in their families, to graduate high school. The race begins at 10:00 am on 109th Street and Riverside Drive. T-shirts and refreshments will be distributed.
Note: From here on out we will not be sending emails to our unpaid members, so make sure to get in contact with us ASAP if you are interested in joining!
1.Group Run Schedule (what we are all looking forward to!):
If you paid your dues, you will receive a link asking what times you are available, so we can work around your busy schedules! We will be adding you to a private Facebook group if you have paid dues to see when the group runs are for that week and if there are any last minute changes. Therefore, please register (online and with dues as soon as possible) so you can get your two feet on the road!
If you would like to lead a workout/run at another time, send us an e-mail and we will add it onto our posts.
Weekends will usually be longer runs. Audrey will be leading one this week to the George Washington Bridge, where runners can choose to return to campus via subway or running back.
All group runs meet at the Sundial and are usually to Riverside Park, Central Park, a public track, or workouts in Dodge if the weather is particularly bad/it’s late at night.
