Other Need to Know Information:

NEW this Season 5K &10K Program: For the first time ever are offering a new program to help people get ready for their first 5K or 10K! We believe running should be accessible to anyone that wants to put in the work and we understand a half marathon might be a lot for someone new to commit to. This new program will now offer a point of entry for anyone that wants to give it a shot.  

Happy Hours: We will be coordinating weekly happy hours every Tuesday as part of the regular season, based on the ability of restaurants and bars to host outside seating. We ask that you follow all CDC guidelines when participating.

Social Events: We will continue to host monthly social events throughout the season based on venue availability and offering of an outside option. We ask that you follow all CDC guidelines when participating.

Aid Stations: We will be offering aid stations once our Saturday runs get a little longer. The aid stations will be supplied with sanitizer. Cups will also be provided at the aid station however it’s recommended you carry your own hydration bottle on your runs especially as summer temperatures set in.

Keys and Jackets: At the start of the season, we will not be offering bins to hold your keys and jackets on our runs. As the season progresses, we may reintroduce this service but no timelines have been set.

Discounts: As always if you shop at Road Runner Sports, they will continue to offer discounts on your purchases if you tell them you are part of Black Flag Running Club. We will also be coordinating with San Diego Race Directors throughout the season and pass on all discount codes we are able to obtain.
