Club Group Runs

In 2022, we are pleased to continue our monthly group runs, with the following updated guidelines:
- Target audience is WTAC members, but runs are open to all.
- We welcome ALL paces, and will try to match to an applicable pace group.
- Typically held the first Saturday of each month (but will defer for conflicts such as holidays and Clamshell races).
- Rotating club members will plan and organize a course of their choosing. 
- Clamshell bonus point for any WTAC members attending the run. 
- These are untimed, free events, with terrain and distance to vary.
- Times indicated below are run start times, not arrival time.  All distances approximate.
