Week 1 – Summer/Fall 2015!

It’s time again for the Melrose Running Club’s Sunday Long Run program!

In short, we’ll meet at Brueggers every Sunday for the next 14 weeks in preparation for Fall Marathons and Half Marathons… except for this week. This week we’ll be running on SATURDAY so MRCers can stay up late at the MRC Summer Party  on Saturday night.

If you have some questions click on the ABOUT link in the upper right of this page. Some FAQs: Running short, bring a dollar. Running long, bring two. Study up the route map for the upcoming week’s run in the schedule to the right. Print it out and bring it if you’re prone to getting lost. Answer the roll call here every week so I bring enough water. Get to Brueggers at 7:45. Hand me your dollars. Let me tell you where you’re going. Go. Find me along the way for drinks and snacks. Finish your run. Have a coffee. Repeat until October. Run the race of your life!

The route this week, out to Farm Street. Head up Main Street, bear right after Ell Pond onto Green Street. At the lights turn right on the LynnFells Parkway. Keep running until you get to the next set of lights. Go left onto Main Street in Saugus.

If you’re running short turn left onto Howard Street, follow it until a left on Green Street and head back to Brueggers along Main Street.

Running long, continue along Main Street onto Farm Street and look for a water stop at Wakefield High School. After the stop continue to the end of Farm Street and turn left onto Water Street. This will bring you to Wakefield Center where you’ll turn left on Main Street. Follow Main back to Melrose all the way to Brueggers.

Ok, that’s all I have. Who’s in? ROLL CALL!
