What we're about

Gathering times start at 9 AM in the morning for Charities Challenge "Catch Me At Claddagh" Training Times during the fall-through-winter.

We're meeting at 9 AM Sunday mornings outside in the parking lot behind old The Claddagh Irish Pub & Restaurant - Maple Grove http://www.claddaghirishpubs.com/maple-grove/

After training 'round Arbor Lake we'll gather back at the Claddagh near the parking area for post-training convivial conversations over bring-your-own breakfast and beverages. Bring your own folding lawn chair, too.

If you start your training run or walk earlier or later, come together when you've finished training and find other CMAC runners and walkers.

Optional certified marked distances for training include: a mile, two miles, 5k, and 4 mile; run or race walk on our USATF certified course. Of course, you can run farther anytime, too.

We'll record times and report them as part of our ongoing CC Training Times. No entry fee!

I do recommend joining CC for an annual $25 membership thereby getting lots of added values; but, CC membership is not required. http://charitieschallenge.org/html/cc_membership.html

We'll be growing Catch Me At Claddagh throughout the year. (Earlier 8 AM CC Training Times will come when the sun rises earlier and temp's rise every May; and change back to later morning Training Times October - April.)

These will be a time to talk about our running and health/fitness goals.

So imagine training with families/friends for faster mile to 5k times.

Please RSVP and tell your family/friends to e-mail their RSVP for “Catch Me At Claddagh” so I may look for every one of you Sunday mornings. What a good time, and a recorded time, we'll each and all have together.
