Weekly Running Schedule

vTuesday Night Runs:

Track workouts: The Merced College track is being resurfaced until May, so we are meeting at our Thursday Night meeting location, at the corner of Tuscany Ave. and Reggio Ct. Generally we meet at the Merced College stadium from 5:30-7:00 p.m. to jog, do sprints or stairs, or walk in a safe and lighted environment.

vThursday Night Runs:

Fall Fun Runs are every Thursday night in September and October.  For 2017, that will be 9/7/17 through 10/26/17.  Distances are 1-mile, 2-mile and 3-mile.  Start time is 6:00 p.m. sharp every Thursday, at Rahilly Park.

For the rest of the year: Meet at the corner of Tuscany Ave. and Reggio Ct. in Merced at 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays for a 1-2 mile warm-up, a 3-mile fast run, and a cool-down. Whether you run sub-7:00 or sub-11:00, this is the place to be!  During hot weather we run along Bear Creek in the shade.
