Wednesday April 3 – Spring running

Lots of news this week! Highlights: cup cleaning raffle, 2nd Annual Half/Full Marathon Cheer Station, race shirt pick-up, Hoka demo & NRC pint night

It’s a new cycle of runs, kicking off with Route 1. Board members leading Wednesday nights this quarter are Beth Meadows, Heidi Huerta and Grant England. They will be getting things started each week.

Route #1

We will start our 13 week cycle with Route #1: One Hilly 5(ish)K. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group.

Cup Cleaning Sign Up and Raffle

Our 2nd Quarter of 2019 Cup Cleaning Volunteer Sign Up and Raffle is open and we need volunteers! (We’ll do the 2019 Q1 raffle at the run tonight!)

Volunteer to help wash the cups!

Everyone that signs up for a week to clean the cups will be entered to win $100 gift card to NRC (huge thanks to our sponsor Schaffer Law Firm). The more you volunteer, the more chances you get to win! Check out the details and Sign up on the Google doc

2nd Annual Half & Full Marathon Cheer Station

Join us for our 2nd annual ENFL cheer station at the St. Jude Rock N’ Roll Marathon and Half Marathon. If you’re not running, come out to cheer on our half and full East Nasty training groups and everyone running. Rock N’ Roll awards cash prizes to the top 3 cheer stations and last year we got 2nd place. Enjoy the race with friends and help our club win some beer money! We will be located under the 11th street underpass near the coffee shop Milk and Honey in the gulch. Sign up through the facebook event page

Can’t make it, but would still love to contribute? We’re happy to take donations of food or other materials to hand out to runners. Post in the discussion and Meg or Bethany will reach out to you with details of how to help.

So put on your shiny shorty shorts, and let’s high kick these runners to the finish line!

Shirt pick-up

Shirts will be available for pick-up at the run tonight starting at 5:30! They will also be at the half & full training group on Saturday.

Hoka Demo & NRC Pint Night

Molly, local HOKA rep, will have a few styles of HOKAS (including the Clifton, Cavu and Arahi) to demo on tonight’s run! She will be set up at 5:30pm at the yellow house (11th & Holly). You’ll leave your “old” shoes with her and then get them and a brew when you give her the HOKAS at NRC’s Pint Night after the run!

    Hey Elisabeth – welcome to Nashville! We would love for you to come run with us. We start every run in pace groups so that everyone can find other people running their speed. We have groups from 7 min/mile to 10 min/mile starting at 6pm. If you prefer to run/walk, we have a group called Lasty Nasty that starts at 5:45. Hope to see you next week!
