The longer you wait, the further you’re getting from your goal.  Make the commitment to be healthy, and join us for a group run.  Contact us to get started!


GROUP RUNS


Social Distancing Group Runs are on Saturdays, leaving from the Canton YMCA parking lot area at 7:30 a.m.  We expect everyone to follow all COVID-19 guidelines.  If you choose to stop by, look for a small group of Foothills Runners and Walkers.  Do practice social distancing if you do attend of 6 feet while we assemble, and maintain 8 feet while running.  If we reach 10 runners, lets break up into pods and head out.  If you are sick, or uncomfortable, and if you do not attend, that is fine.  Everyone’s health is important.


The popular routes are running inside Heritage Park and Etowah River Park; or run up to the R.T. Jones library; you can run out and back, or do a loop through Etowah and Heritage back to the YMCA.  4 to 4.3 miles RT.

 
Distances vary from 1 to 8+ miles, and from walkers to faster paced, depending on who shows.  Please reply if you plan to attend.

***Please take the necessary precautions for combating coronavirus.  Please reference the following guidelines.*** 
 
Going forward, starting with this group run, all persons attending Foothills events must sign a Foothills Membership/Group Run Wavier, as required by our parent organization, the RRCA.  It will be sent to you by email via Google Forms.  It can be electronically signed.
