Happy Monday! 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.
Special Events/News This Week:
-Special Announcement: Member Month continues! All events have been posted on our site in a special post that you can view here(link). Help spread the word about our club and the events, so that we can all enjoy it and attract newcomers! There are still 3 special events for the remainder of the month, so let's all give an extra push for outreach.
-Tuesday Evening Picnic - Tuesday, August 21st - 7:30PM to 8:30PM - Justin Hermann Plaza (near the Ferry Building): This is a first for Tuesday night runners/walkers and a continuation of Member Month! We will be having a picnic following the Tuesday evening walks/runs that will be free to members and $5 for non-members. If you need to bring a jacket or anything, Bob Callori is graciously offering his services as coat check extraordinaire! Once you finish your run/walk, head to the usual meeting spot below the Ferry Building clock tower and we will head over from there. If the weather is bad, we will find a close, indoor venue. Full info here (link).
-Dive Bar Friday - Friday, August 24th - 6:00PM to 10:00PM - Lexington Bar (3464 19th Street): Our second to last special event for Member Month is Dive Bar Friday at the Lex! Judith has done an excellent job organizing this event and we're excited to take our club to the Lex and enjoy an evening in the Mission. Full info here (link). Bring your friends along and see you there!
