Wednesday Run at First Street Tavern (FST)

Our Wednesday runners meet at First Street Tavern around 6:15pm before stepping off at 6:30pm. When you arrive, just look for the runners who will be standing around and stretching in front of FST. We're easy to identify by our running shoes, shorts or reflective gear.  You'll be greeted with a smile and someone will ask about how far you'd like to go and what pace. Just remember, there is no such thing as "Slow", we all go our own pace!

Who you'll meet.

At our Wednesday run you will most likely meet some of our regulars: Jesse, Robert, Laura, Jon or Anthony to name a few. Everyone is friendly and all you have to do is say "Hello" and let us know it's your first time out.

All it takes to be a part of CAR is to show up, then keep showing up. The more you show up, the more names you'll know and faces you'll recognize. You'll soon have the route memorized and will most likely make a few more friends!

How does this work?

We meet up around 6:15pm and start figuring out who is going what distance at what pace. Many times there are are 2 or 3 people of similar ability who will run with you if you'd like. If you like to run solo, just let us know. 

At 6:30pm we take a group picture on the steps to let our community know we're out here and for safety. Immediately after the picture, we get our watches set and take off. 

After the run, everyone is invited to stick around for our very informal social that usually includes some food and a drink. There is never any pressure to drink alcohol and if you need to run and go home, that's ok! We're just happy you put in some miles.

The Route

Most runners get in a 5K run at a minimum but that is not a requirement. If you are building up to your first mile, that's highly encouraged. If you'd like to get in 5 or more, that's a welcome adventure too. 

This route is fairly simple and follows the sidewalks down Main St towards the post office. Watch for traffic as you run through downtown and traverse over to the Post Office. Where the sidewalk ends is the turn around and that will put you right at 3.10 miles.
