Training group registration is open!
Registration takes place at South Sound Running. You may print out the 2017 registration form here and take it to South Sound Running or fill it out there.

This year's swag includes this awesome Nike beanie, as well as gloves (not pictured).

The first run is on Jan. 14. Greg Klein will give training tips, and others will talk about nutrition, preventing injuries, and other training tips.

The group runs include planned water stops and brief pre-run lectures to help runners prepare to reach their goals. Many runners also make new friends and running partners that go beyond race day.
