Fun Run at Ashley, Headlamp Recommended, Every Thursday, October - March, 5:45PM

The Empire One Running Club (EORC) sponsors a four mile fun run at the Ashley Reservoir in Holyoke every Thursday (except Thanksgiving) from October thru March. Once a month the club buys pizza for everyone who shows up.

The group gathers at the fire gate and starts the run at 6PM, sharp.

You do not need to be an EORC member to run with the group, or to have the pizza.

There are usually 30-40 people running of all skill levels. There is no entry fee!

After the race most of the runners stay at the Elk's to drink beer, eat whatever is cooking at the Elk's, and socialize.

This is a great way to meet people who like to run.

Enter "250 Whitney Ave, Holyoke, Ma.", or the coordinates, "42.175,[masked]" into the search box at maps.google.com to see a map of the area.There is a building (the Elks Club) with parking lots on either side. When you get there you will see a fire gate blocking the road just past the second lot, that is the entrance to the reservoir. On Thursday nights the restrooms are open.

    I just started running and I am not very good at it yet... Are there really all skill levels or should I continue and run on my own and join at a later date?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
