March Jog & Joe – Starbucks Chain Lake

The March the Jog & Joe returned to the BLT area, hosted at Starbucks Chain Lake Drive across from the Canadiana Restaurant.

Starbucks has been a supporter of our club and most recently helped us with the Reboot Run by providing a 5-gallon theromos, cups and stir sticks for hot chocolate. So we thought it would be nice to pay them a visit. Read more

Run notes for Monday, March 6

We were back at it tonight after a successful Reboot Run yesterday.

Tonight marked the last Monday evening run on the sidewalks until next fall/winter. With the time change coming this weekend, next Monday we will have enough daylight to run on the trail. It’s likely we will stick with the Chain of Lakes trail for now since the BLT trail still has ice and snow but we will evaluate week by week. Read more

Running Successfully Rebooted!´╗┐

On Sunday, May 5 over 50 runners gathered on a bright but chilly day to participate in the second annual Reboot Run, an event hosted by the BLT Runners.

The Reboot Run is a free group run with the aim of encouraging runners to re-start their running routines, especially if winter conditions have put a damper on running. The event is held on the Chain of Lakes Trail which is kept clear of snow and ice during the winter. Participants run/jog/walk for 24 minutes and are greeted at the finish with a warm cup of hot chocolate. Participants also participate in a prize draw made possible through generous sponsor donations. Read more
