Dressed for Saturday in their ugly holiday sweaters (see photo above), the 2014 Fifth Third River Bank Run Road Warriors will be starting their training this week! Meet them at the Saturday, 12/7 Training Run/Clinic at the David D. Hunting YMCA and/or check them out online now.
The first Fifth Third River Bank Run Training Run/Clinic will take place Saturday, December 7 at the David D. Hunting YMCA (475 Lake Michigan Drive, downtown Grand Rapids). Join staff from BROOKS and Gazelle Sports for a "Getting Started" Training Clinic from 7:15-7:45a, showcasing the top shoe and apparel choices to get you off on the right foot in your training! At 8a, the Fifth Third River Bank Run Road Warriors will lead 2 and 5 mile aid station-assisted training runs, starting and finishing at the YMCA. After your training, return to the YMCA Community Room for Panera Bread bagels, bananas, juice, coffee/hot chocolate and networking with Metro Health Sports Medicine and others training for Saturday, May 10!
