Ladies Day

Ladies step out today (Thursday, March 2) as the Women Run Arkansas-Batesville clinic begins at the new Community Center parking lot at 5:30. Online registration remains open for the clinic. Spread the word to your friends who might be looking to develop the healthy habit of running. The clinic is a free 10-week program to prepare ladies for a graduation 5K in Conway May 13. All levels of fitness are welcome from beginning walkers to those who have run a 5K or two and want to improve. Director Janie Barber plans a guest speaker during warmup each Tuesday and Thursday followed by 30 minutes of exercise tailored for each group.

Race Calendars Updated

The combined Challenge Series and Grand Prix race calendar has been updated (apologies for dragging heels). We have 10 races set in the Challenge Series with the BGMC moving to a date in June still to be decided. We are considering a November race and may add a second race one month to bring the total to 12. Awards this year will be determined by number of races completed.

We Meet Again

The monthly meeting approaches: Tuesday, March 21, at 7 pm at the Citizens Bank Annex. You're invited to the usual group run at 6 pm for all interested parties. We'll again review recent races and preview what's down the road.
