Track Workouts Have Ended

Track workouts have ended for 2016.  We hope to have a big turnout for the spring of 2017.  This is one of the big benefits of club membership.

What is a track workout?  Coach John Tuttle brings a workout each week to help improve speed and endurance. If you have never tried a track workout it is a good way to become a stronger faster runner.
