Wednesday Morning Group Run

What: Foot Rx Group Run
Where: Reuter YMCA, South Asheville
When: 6 AM - gotta start the day off right

The idea behind the group run is to provide a meeting spot, motivation, inspiration... or whatever you need to lace up the kicks at 6 am.

We meet in the lobby of the Reuter YMCA. Runners/walkers are invited to run/walk at whatever distance/pace you choose and to record your estimated mileage. As you reach benchmark mileage distances (100 miles, 200 miles etc) you will achieve prizes from the store.

We meet rain or shine... sometimes in snow and ice, but sometimes not. Check back here for updates/cancellations.
