So 2020! Everyone has gone virtual!!! We're no different. Our recently completed 10K raised $1400 for the Medfield Park & Rec.
We supported 3 of our runners in their virtual Boston Marathon around Medfield (and 4 'fun runners'!). Folks jumped in and out of the entire course to run with these fine Soles!
What's next? For the rest of 2020 we're looking at doing similar runs with friends, physically distanced, socially connected. Maybe you're trying for your first 10K, 5K or half marathon. Join us to train, and even run with us
10/18 - Heady Topper Virtual 4 Miler
11/14 - BAA #finishStrong Virtual Half
December - Virtual Angel Run
Two members, Matt A and MaryJane E, both recently completed 50K (31 miles) at local trail races. Yup, more than a marathon and over terrain that can be rugged, rocky and unpredictable. Interested?
My First Half Marathon
Having only just gotten into running this year, Jenny M decided to take a crack at her first half, and picked a cracker. he 'Around Cape Ann' half is a pretty course. But undulates wildly. She toe'd the start line and went out and crushed her race.
Couch to 5K
We've supported folks in their goal of getting to their first (ever or in a long while) 5K in the past. Watch this space for future attempts
"Run often. Run long. But never outrun your joy of running."
BAA finishSTRONG Challenge
October - December
We've never met a running challenge we didn't like. Join a group of hearty Soles (virutally) competing in the BAA finishSTRONG event. From early October through the end of December, race the B.A.A. 5K, B.A.A. 10K, and B.A.A. Half Marathon anywhere and at any time.
The Van of Soles didn't roll this year due to you know what, but we are gauging interest in holding a local relay around town. Maybe a 26.2 team event or trying our own crazy, overnight run.
WE WENT PLOGGING
The first couple were such an eye opening success (so much Sutter Home!), we did it again!
We all run these streets everyday and we hate to see litter and garbage on our routes. Let's pick up some trash, get in some bonus miles and pretty up the town.
Who said running is a selfish sport?!
Details on the next lucky street coming soon!
