    The October Social is gearing up to be a blast! Group workout plus Food = the perfect late season or base season activity.


    And if you're lacking motivation now that race season is over or almost over then come out and socialize!

    We will meet in the parking lot of the Homewood soccer fields (at the South Lakeshore entrance) at 7 a.m. Please bring your bike trainer and running shoes. We will have a workout designed for the group and a space set up for everyone.
