Temperatures are rising in Muskoka but that has not stopped intrepid runners from continuing to come out in good numbers for MARS workouts Tuesdays (6:15 am at Conroy Park), Thursdays (6:15 am at Conroy Park) and Sundays (7:30am). The club has welcomed many new members this summer and we are hoping to show growth when we launch into our fall cross country season. For the past two years we’ve been noted as “that little new team from the north”. We have had many great results in our first two years and would like to grow, both by fielding a larger group of runners and by improving our team results. Come out and give us a try.

Six of our high school runners just returned from 8 days away at Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Vermont at High School Running Camp. They joined 16 other motivated teenagers from the US to train and enjoy beautiful northern Vermont. They were coached by 6 coaches, including an Olympian, 2 NCAA Athletes, a coach with nearly 40 years experience and an elite women’s marathoner and mountain runner. It was a great experience and our local teens made us proud with their dedication and behaviour while in Vermont.
Our MARS training runs continue 6:15am at Conroy Track Tuesdays and Thursdays and Sunday mornings at 7:30 am. The TeamSnap calendar has details for club members. Drop ins welcome for $5 but need to bring a signed waiver that can be found here.
See you on the roads and trails…
