Trail Hawks - Not to distract from our awesome event, the 2014 Sanders Saunter 10K/25K on 11/22, but a friend is a first time RD for the TJ5K on 11/15. I'm told it is a flat, fast course. Probably a good place to shoot for that PR! Info below ..

Looks like summer's over, so it's back to autumn and winter hours for the Saturday long run -- 7:30 a.m.

Today's Run

Gal Gallop

Where: Meet in the trailhead parking lot just off 8th & Oak in north Lawrence. Bring a light, it gets dark on the trails!
Click here for directions.

When: 6:30 PM

What: Don't have to be fast or able to run 20 miles for this one. Only requirement is to not be a guy! It's all about having fun in a supportive, non-competitive trail environment. Goes at the pace of the slowest runner -- beginner-friendly. Runs on the Kansas River "Sandrat" trails. Waterbottles or some sort of hydration system is required for the summer and headlamps are required for the winter!
