1200 and 2000 Mile Club
Do you run or walk an average of 23 miles a week or more? If so, you are probably a good candidate for the 1200 or 2000 Mile Club. Run Wild Missoula members who complete 1200 or 2000 miles in a calendar year are eligible for bragging rights plus a gift from Run Wild Missoula that shows off your status as part of the club. Last year we gave compression socks with “1200 Mile Club” or “2000 Mile Club” printed on them. In the past we’ve also given out jackets, backpacks and arm warmers. We don’t know what the gift will be this year yet, but we promise it will be something you want.
SO, please START entering your miles at http://www.runwildmissoula.org/blog/index.php/fuseaction/1200mileClub.main.htm if you haven’t already. The deadline to start entering miles is approaching. You must be a member to enter miles and you must login with your username and password. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re unsure how to do this.
Even if you don’t think you will complete 1200 miles this year we encourage you to enter your miles as it gives us an idea of how many miles the club runs and walks. It’s also a great way for you to track your miles.
Tuesday Track Cross Country Workouts Start September 17
The mornings are a little cooler and soon the leaves will start to change and the air will get crisp. That always makes me think of cross country season. Montana Cup is just around the corner on November 2 and in Butte this year. Register at http://www.montanacup.com. Run Wild Missoula will provide a bus for members to get to the event again this year. (Look for information on our website soon.) In the meantime, start training with our Tuesday Track coach Courtney Babcock so Missoula can bring home titles for men’s and women’s open and masters categories. Even if you don’t plan to compete in Montana Cup, pull your spikes on a reminisce of high school cross country days during Tuesday cross country workouts every Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the golf course behind Dornblaser. RWM members of all levels participate in cross country workouts so don’t be shy.
