This past Saturday, I enjoyed some Big Bob Gibson BBQ with Eric Fritz. Eric is the president of the Huntsville Track Club. We spent some time discussing how we could connect the various running groups in North Alabama. One of the recent developments along these lines is a new Facebook Group called Run256. Essentially, it is a forum to share about races, seek advice, post about group runs, share stories and so on. We also talked about each community hosting a group run and/or picnic of sorts. Basically, it would be an opportunity to meet others in our region and share our joy of running. Additionally, we are investigating promoting an HTC race along with a TRAC race. A runner participating in both races would perhaps earn a special medal or something of the kind. We are working with Decatur’s River City Runners, too.
In any case, we are just getting off the ground, but I am excited to let you know what is developing. I welcome your comments. Send us a message on Facebook. Check here and on Facebook for updates.
