Good day! Here is your weekly source of all things FrontRunners that are coming in the days ahead! Special news and events are at the beginning of this post and regular, reoccurring events are on the lower half. Please pay close attention to the special news on the month of August and the activities planned for that month.
Special Events/News This Week:
-Special Announcement: August is Member Month! We are celebrating existing membership and also attracting newcomers to check out our club. We are packing the month with activities including movie night, the women's run, bagel brunch, the Kinsey Sicks, dive bar night, a party, and even a theme run, with the possibility of a couple more extra events happening. You will receive a special email on all the events during this week and we'll really be promoting the club and events around the city and to friends. To make this month a success, we really need everyone to spread the word about our club and the events, so that we can all enjoy it and attract newcomers! Think about what FrontRunners has done for you as a club member and how that experience and family can be positive for others.
