The next Tortoise and Hare race is Sunday, December 7th at Spring Creek Park (6k) and it’s probably going to be colder than the first two.
The race begins at 8, followed by FREE bagel/coffee breakfast at Rain Tree Athletic Club
The following will help us get started on time:
If you are new to the club or you have not participated in a Tortoise & Hare race during the last two seasons (i.e., since October 2013), please enter a predicted time here at least a couple days before the race.
Please arrive early (no later than 7:45) so we can get everyone checked-in (earlier is better)!
If you plan on signing up for FCRC membership, please either do so before the TnH or come with your form filled out and payment ready.
Also at the December 16 Holiday Lights Run & Picnic, we will be hosting a Winter Gear Drive in order to provide homeless men, women and children with the supplies they need to survive on the streets and the support and companionship that they need to navigate the path from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
Save the date and join us for the annual holiday party! Our annual Holiday Lights Run and Potluck will be Tuesday, December 16th. We’ll be gathering at 6:00pm with a 6:15 Holiday Lights Run followed by a potluck dinner at the Pavilions at Silver Sage (West of Raintree Athletic Club).
We’ll also be hosting a Winter Gear Drive at the potlock. We’ll collect clothing in order to provide homeless men, women and children with the supplies they need to survive on the streets and the support and companionship that they need to navigate the path from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
Below are more details about the Holiday Lights Run and Potluck. You can read about our Holiday Lights Run from last year (and previous years) on my personal blog to get a better sense of how it is “run.”
Do you know what you are going to do on Thanksgiving Day aside from gobbling turkey? Here’s one option: run the Pelican Lakes 5k in Windsor!
The Fort Collins Running Club is sponsoring the Pelican Lake Turkey Trot on November 27. This race sponsors Athletes in Tandem. They have provided us a $5 off registration code. (FYI it looks like November 15 is the last day to guarantee a shirt).
If you are an FCRC member, this e-mail code should have been e-mailed to you along with instructions on how to use it on Wednesday, November 13 at approximately 7:10 A.M. If you didn’t receive it, you can e-mail us.
NOTE: The Fort Collins Running Club sponsors local groups and events with a running focus. If you or someone you know would be interested, please let them know! We are always accepting applications for funding and we see this support as a core part of our mission.
Here’s a note from Nick, our Tortoise & Hare race director. We have altered the traditional Warren Park Tortoise & Hare race from a loop instead of out-and-back, mainly to reduce foot traffic through the neighborhoods and prevent residential drivers from getting agitated with us.
