 Well, Runners!

This is it, the last official run of the 2019-20 Black Flag Season. Remember we are not running on Saturday but hosting the virtual race on  Sunday at 7:15am. Make sure to review the map and we will see you on Sunday. 

I also want to take a moment and thank everyone that has been part of the club. It's awesome to have a group of such amazing people. Let's keep those fingers crossed that we can get back to normal sooner, rather than later. 

Hope to see all of you at our upcoming free runs. 


Next Season - What are we going to do? 

As you know everything is up in the air for the 2020-2021 race season which makes it difficult to plan and obviously train. While plans remain up in the air we will be moving to a FREE model where anyone that wants to come out is free come out. We will post on Social Media once a week where we will be meeting. Make sure you join the social media listed below to stay on top of whats going on. Once races are reset we will return to the more formal training approach hoping by October but we will see.
