 Hey everyone,


There is a lot going on this week. The runners doing the Carlsbad half  you are in the home stretch! That means we are tapering and prepping for the awesome race to come. Congratulations to everyone that has gotten to this point. Whether it is your first half or you are a seasoned veteran, it is quite the accomplishment to prepare and train hard for this event and it will all come to fruition this weekend.


For the SD Half runners, you guys are doing great and congratulations to you too! I have seen some tremendous dedication this season and watching everyone progress has been inspiring.

Importance of your TEAM Shirt 

We are not the type of club that makes anything a requirement but we truly hope everyone will wear there team sure on Sunday whether you are running the race or coming out to the cheer station. We are still a new name in town and want to show our presence. It also makes it a lot easier to cheer for you when we know what we are looking for on the course.
