What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Starting at the bottom of the stairs by La Gloria. 4 mile run. Food and drinks afterwards to the Pearl square (the food court). A good place to park is at Tacoland on Elmira St between Josephine and Grayson. If you can't find parking along Elmira or Grayson, you can park at the Pearl parking garage for free.
We will meet near the outdoor stage at La Tuna and head down to the river. The course is a very nice out and back along the new south end of The Riverwalk. Unlike the summer, the sun will be set by the time we meet. Therefore plan on having reflective gear and a flashlight to help you navigate The Riverwalk and to make sure people see coming. We offer two courses which can viewed here: The North Course (La Tuna to Tower of Americas) (http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1050368867) The South Course (La Tuna to Concepcion Park) (http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1050370785) Afterwards we can grab a bite to eat and some liquid carbs at La Tuna (cash only). The restaurant does take credit cards but does not sell alcohol. Since this course is an out and back it is perfect for both new runners/walkers and runners who are new to our group so I'm hoping to see a bunch of new faces! Please note La Tuna is a restaurant and City of San Antonio Health Code requires T-shirts worn on restaurant property including the outdoor patio area.
Everyone is welcome - runners or walkers no matter your level or pace! Get your morning started off on the right foot...literally!! This EARLY MORNING run is held in the Alamo Ranch subdivision near 1604/Culebra Rd and 1604/Wiseman Blvd. at the Valero Circle K right next to the big, new HEB in Alamo Ranch. It's right across from CVS Pharmacy. Please park on the side or rear. We'll meet at the round picnic tables. After meeting up at Valero Corner Store the group will do a short to mid-distance run around the general area of Alamo Ranch Parkway. Routes are adjustable so distances vary by preference. There is hardly any traffic and the courses consists of very wide sidewalks. Flashlight or headlamp is preferred but not required. Sidewalks are very safe. Though no distance is prearranged, we usually run 5 miles. Please bring water and fuel as necessary, especially during the hotter months as San Antonio came be quite humid in the mornings, but it's well worth avoiding the blazing heat of the Texas daytime sun! Jim and I (Rex) would hope that you would RSVP so that we can get a good reckoning of who might come. We look forward to meeting everyone! See you out there bright and early! Let's meet our 2019 goals!!! Jim Yanaway and Rex Field
