The Summer Series

Join us on Wednesday evenings for our 56 year old summer running and walking program, the weekly runner hang-out in Traverse City during the summer. This informal race and training program consists of distances between 3 miles and 7 miles. They include handicap, prediction and team-handicap races so runners of all ages and abilities can come out on top. Don’t want to race? Sign in, and then jump in the event as a training run; or, take off on a training run with another runner; or, head over to the track for your weekly track workout. Still looking for fun? Afterwards, hang out and socialize with area runners and/or meet up with them at the Restaurant of the week for food, drink and more socializing.

What are the points?:  Available points are based on miles (3 miles = 30, 4 miles = 40, etc). Some weeks offer more points as these days used to be longer distances (10k run is worth 93 points and used to be a 15k run!). The gap between points depends on how many participants are doing the event. If 30 people did the first week, first place would get 30, second would get 29, etc.

When?: Wednesdays at 6:30pm, starting June 13th, 2018.

Where?: Second run is at Earthen Ales!

How Much?: No charge. TCTC membership encouraged.
