The Austin Runners Club hosts FREE runs in Austin. The Tuesday/Thursday night group is referred to as 'The Ship of Fools' (or just The Ship).
The Ship of Fools leaves The Rock at 5:45pm prompt. If you can't be at The Rock at 5:45, go to O'Henry Middle School on Exposition. Warm-up drills start around 6pm.
Tuesday nights are track workouts. These vary in distance and speed, but will typically total around 2.5 to 3 miles.
Thursday nights are hill repeats or tempo runs. These too will also vary in distance and speed, but will typically vary between 4 and 6 miles.
