Need a last minute qualifying time for the Olympic Trials? Want to run some circles before Taco Tuesday? Rather run a race than do a workout? Have children who want to run some sprints? Never run a track race before? Have not run a track race since high school? Tired of so much focus on the marathon and you know you got speed? These are all great races to come venture out to the Summer Track series. This has been a staple of June for several years. The events are low key and a great opportunity to learn how to run track and compete again some other folks. Hope to see you out there.
