In the summer of 2002, AARC Fun Runs were moved from Monday evening to Thursday evening.  The club provided "lead" runners, and had slower and shorter runs as well as more brutal runs for those who prefer that.  (Some runners do 3-5 miles, others going about 6.   Paces ranged from about 7.5 minute miles to 10+ minute miles.)

In July, the starting time was moved up to allow for earlier darkness.  Stretching starts at 6:15 p.m. at Born To Run in Springhouse, and running begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. -- well, maybe a little less promptly if we know someone's running 5 minutes late -- we'll wait for you if you call (215-641-0410) and let us know.

The turnout of runners has grown each week.  Or is it that runners have turned out to groan each week?  Following the run, runners gather in the parking lot to enjoy some post-run beverages and refreshments.  Runners from each of several weeks can be seen below...    (click on a picture to see a larger view)
