We are a ragtag group of people with a serious case of "The Runs". We range in ability and intensity. Some of us have just recently taken up running for sport, exercise, or just to meet other locals. Others of us are running nerds, hell-bent on competing with and against each other to achieve our running goals. We invite you to join us for a run sometime or become a committed member of FSARC! PERSONAL GOALS Our first belief is that running bring personal health and growth! Whether you are a beginner, training for your first 5k, or looking to conquer your first marathon, we want to run alongside you as you train! Over the years we have seen pounds lost, friendships built, and goals accomplished again and again. Our monthly celebrations seek to praise these successes among our members! GROUP RUNS Group runs occur 2-3 times a week. Simply show up at the location and time posted, find runners looking for a similar distance/pace/goal and enjoy the run! Our runs typically utilize the amazing Great Lakes Bay Regional Trail systems throughout the tri-cities area. We run year-round, in rain, shine, and snow! Finally, our runs typically conveniently end at a location for social food and drink! This is a great way to get to know other runners, relax, and celebrate the work just put in! SOCIALIZING Over the years, our group has become fiercely serious about two things: Running and Socializing! We love getting to know other runners at races, group runs, and social events. Besides post-run food and drinks, we also gather once a month for a celebratory pizza party.FSARC members often sign up for races together, gather before and after and "make a weekend" of it. If you love to run and love to hang out with runners - FSARC is for you!
