Training Runs

Practice runs will be held on the course on Sunday August 18 and Saturday August 24. Each run begins at 8:30 a.m. from the parking lot at Fountainhead Regional Park.

All interested runners, whether or not they are entered in the race, and men are invited. It is possible to run varying distances: 6, 8, 10, 13 miles or longer. The practice runs are very informal and the pace is relaxed. Light refreshments will be served.

Please note that park rules require us to limit the number of participants in each run to 60. If you’re coming to a training run, you must sign up.
