Run Training: 5k training for all levels. Begins Monday, July 31, 2023 and culminates with a 5k on Saturday, Sept. 23 (the Covington Autumn 5k is an option that day).
We will meet Mon, Tues, and Thurs mornings at 6am (time flexible to start later depending on who signs up) at Legion Field in Covington.
Requirements: quality running shoes (if you’re unsure, wear what you have at first and I can help you), a water bottle you can hold/carry while running (again, if you’re unsure, come with what you have and I can help you), and a light of some sort to wear as the days get shorter.
All questions welcome: Katies1225@gmail.com
Topsy Turkey 10k
A 10k Glorified Group run/race!
This is NOT a sanctioned/registered/official road race. The streets will be open, there will not be water stations, you will be running at your own risk.
We will meet at Legion Field in Covington, GA on Thursday, November 23rd, and begin PROMPTLY at 8am.
[If for some reason the field is in use and the parking lot is full we will park as close as we can and meet at the start line which is on Mill St. just outside of the Legion Field entrance.]
Facebook Event Page: will be linked here closer to time.

You have to study the route because I will not mark it this year — I have PTSD from the last time I did that. 😵💫
