Tortoise & Hare Series Underway!

The Tortoise & Hare 2017-18 series is officially underway, with the Rolland Moore 4K a smash hit on Sunday, October 1. It was wonderful to see so many out there for the season opener. We had a total of 150 runners and 10 volunteers.

Results are now available, and check out Photos of the event.

We’ll see you again for the Spring Creek 5k on November 5.

Remember – the entire 7-race series is FREE for all club members.  Join today!
