10/18/17 TWN – 10 Miles of Fun

For all you Richmond Marathon and Half Marathon Runners….it’s almost taper time!!!!  And Fall showed up just in time for these last long runs.  Should be a beautiful night.    Please remember your reflective gear and lights.  I’m guessing that just about everyone will be doing the 10 mile route, but there is a shorter route as well and both will hit the SAG!

Looking for a way to celebrate your post race victory!  Well come join your fellow TWN runners for a Fun Pub Run.  We’ll log a few miles to loosen the legs up post race.  And we’ll enjoy a few celebratory beers at nearby breweries and pubs along the way.  Mark your calendars for Wednesday 11/15/17.  More details to come!

8 and 10 miles this week.  There is also a shorter route as well.

The weather as forecast right now is not so good for our run….looks like it could be rainy or at the very least overcast.  PLEASE WEAR REFLECTIVE GEAR OR CARRY A LIGHT OF SOME VARIETY!!!  We are going into Windsor Farms this week which is notorious for getting runners lost in the dark!  Please check the route ahead of time so you know where you are going. And bring a light!! (Yes I said that twice) 🙂

PUB RUN!!!! 9/4/16

Let’s end the summer with a celebration of all our running accomplishments.  We all survived through some damn hot weather, and pretty grueling runs, so we all deserve a cold brew or two or three! 🙂

We’ll meet at Banditos on Sunday 9/4/16 at 3:30 PM.  If you want to pre-party at Banditos please arrive early enough that you can still meet us outside at 3:30.  From there we will hit two breweries in Scott’s Addition – Isley and Ardent.  And then we’ll head back towards Banditos area with a stop at Buddy’s!  Then we’ll go south towards Carytown and stop in at Citizen Burger Bar.  Last, we’ll cross over Boulevard to enjoy one more stop at Cask.  Then we’ll head back to Banditos.

Come for as much or as little as you want!  You can even join us halfway if you like.  We’ll tag ourselves on Facebook with each stop so you know where we are!

Please like this post if you think you’ll be joining us for all or part of the run so we know how many people to expect.  And Happy Running!
