Level 2-Easy 3-4 mile Run, yes Run... Test event.

Ok, I know this a hiking group, but I'm going to start adding some runs in the mix. Most of you know that I'm a pretty dedicated runner, have been for almost 6 years now. I've ran 4 marathons and over 20 other races.

This will be a test event to see how much interest there is for running type events. This is NOT for beginners, but we'll not leave you behind if you can't keep up.

We'll start out with an easy pace, 10:00 minute mile pace, 3-4 miler around Farewell Bend and River Bend Parks by the Old Mill. 3 miles is about one loop around from the flag bridge to Bill Heally Bridge to the Colorado St. Bridge and back to the flag bridge. With an added section to the foot bridge in Farewell Bend Park, we can get close to another mile. This will be on paved paths and some dirt trails.

We'll meet at the flag bridge by Anthony's. Park on the west side of the river.

I'll wait till 5:05 pm, then I'm gone...running.

If you would like to do a fast walk, please have a planned partner, so that you aren't left alone.

Sun sets about 5:30, so depending on the pace, we could be finishing in the dark. Please be prepared with a flashlight or headlamp.

Later if this is a popular activity, I will be adding some trail runs too.

*If you haven't been running, please consult your physician prior to doing this activity.

    Great run! Hopefully next time we won't have to bail early to ditch our untrained dog. :)

    Very nice to run with a group. I think it was my 3rd time ever running with other people. Nice evening. Thanks to those who came out!

    Here's a thought - you could consider a rename of the club to something along the lines of "Bend Outing Club" and thereby encompass more outdoors events.
