Route #1 / Pint Night

This week is a great week to invite someone new.   The run is “only” 3 miles and post-run NRC is hosting their monthly pint night.

If you invite someone, remind them to wear reflective gear.

Route #1

New Route #1

Marathon Training has begun/change of location

We had a great turn out on Saturday for our first half/full marathon training session.   If you want to join us it’s free, and we meet every Saturday (but one) until race day.    Please take a moment and register, because that is how we will communicate with you during the training period.  (Note: registering for our training does not register you for the race and vice versa.   And even if you are not planning on racing in April, you are welcome to join us for these Saturday long runs.)

Speaking of which….

This Saturday we are moving locations since there is a race at Shelby Bottoms.   The plan was to meet at the nature center, but we will be meeting at the base of the pedestrian bridge on the Nissan Stadium side of the river.    The marathon training will meet at 7:30, and the half training will meet at 8.   Please make a note of this change!

Road Trip

I mentioned that for marathon training, we are training every Saturday morning except one.   That day is March 5.    That day we are encouraging everyone to race.   That is a perfect weekend to race as we prepare for the St. Jude Rock n’ Roll races April.

Consider joining us for our first destination race to Chattanooga the weekend of March 4 – 6.   There is a 5k, half marathon, full marathon and a marathon relay.  We have a discount code for 20% off (“eastnasty”), and there are some great deals on hotels.     Finally, if you are joining us for half/full marathon training, this race fits in perfectly!    Here is more information.

  1. For those who can’t make the trip to Chattanooga, the Tom King Classic Half Marathon and 5k is also on March 5th. The half marathon is basically flat, fast, and community-oriented. Web: http://www.tomkingclassic.com/index.html

  2. In addition to the Chattanooga races, the Tom King 1/2 marathon and 5k are on the 5th as well. For those who wish to stay local. The 1/2 marathon course is a flat out and back from Nissan Stadium.

    For those who want to stay local (and everyone of course should try to go to the ‘Nooga), the Tom King 1/2 marathon and 5k are also that weekend. The 1/2 is an out and back from Nissan Stadium into Shelby Park. Super flat and fast.
