We aim to unite runners in our community in a fun and supportive environment that will build stronger bonds and give the opportunity for everyone to improve.
We get together at different times and places with running options that appeal to a wide array of runners. These include:
#MonRun – Our weekly Monday night group run
We run every Monday rain or shine at 6:30 pm from the BLT Trail parking lot beside the Coke Plant in Lakeside Industrial Park, off the St. Margaret’s Bay Rd.
From mid-spring to mid-fall we run on the BLT Trail. When it gets dark in the fall we switch over to running on the sidewalk along the St. Margaret’s Bay Road.
Day of the week and time vary depending on the time of year. From spring to fall we hold free, semi-guided weekly speed workouts for members every Wednesday night at 6:30 pm. During winter months we rent lanes on the Canada Games Centre track. Members can sign up to attend for a nominal fee to help cover the cost of track rental.
We typically hold two monthly social runs/events:
- Jog & Joe – A 40 minute run held on the second Saturday of every month at 8am starting from Starbucks Chain Lake ending with a coffee.
- Wingnut Wednesday – Held on the last Wednesday of every month, we usually meet at East Side Marios Bayers Lake for half price appetizers and a sociable. Sometimes members will organize a run before appetizers.
In addition to the above we will regularly organize special runs and/or social events. Examples include segment challenges and BLT2B&B, a one way run to the Train Station Bike & Bean Cafe in Tantallon.
