You don't need to post only running-related items, but commercial interests don't have a business being on here (unless you're trying to sell your used treadmill, for example). We don't have "rules" but will try to use our best good-faith judgment. 

Please do not list the full name of anybody other than yourself. Please use first names only or first name plus first letter of last name. Messages that include full names will be deleted. 

When starting a topic for an event with a specific date, please list the date of the event in the subject line. For example: "Media 5 Miler Friday June 17".

Some posts will be deleted after a while due to space limitations. Have fun, and please be sure to visit our main website for more information on our club and more running-related information.

Runs remain on Pandemic Hiatus until at least Jan 19

As some of you may have noticed, the city’s coronavirus restrictions on outdoor sports are expiring on Monday, January 4.

We’re going to hold off on starting our runs back up for at least two more weeks in case of a post-holiday surge in cases. I’ll reassess the situation at that point and either we’ll start back up if things look ok or we’ll continue our pandemic hiatus until the numbers start going back down and staying down.

Thanks for your patience. I miss running with all of you. Stay safe and we’ll see each other soon.

Re: Runs remain on Pandemic Hiatus until at least Jan 19

In my quest to make everybody unhappy at least some of the time, I'm keeping the club shut down for at least two more weeks, until February 2. If the Covid situation looks stable at that time, I intend to reopen (but I'm not promising anything). If it looks like it's spiraling out of control, then we'll remain shut down until I don't know when. I'm trying to avoid a situation where we reopen as the numbers are going back up and are then forced to shut back down.

Thanks for your patience.

Everybody stay safe and healthy, and try to stay sane.
