Monday Night Run

Daylight Savings Cookout and Celebration with Nike

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when the days get longer and we can actually see while running at 5:30! So, let’s celebrate! Join us at our weekly Wednesday Night Run. Nike will be on hand with a few of their latest models for you to take for a test run. Afterwards, enjoy some grilled burgers and dogs, fresh off the grill, and some cold beverages! We hope to see you! For more information visit: or give us a call at 205-870-5644.
