Happy eclipse week! Grab a pair of those special viewing glasses while you check out your weekly dose of FrontRunners news and events:

SFFR Uniform Order - CLOSED
Our initial uniform ordering window is closed for now. We may have a limited stock of extra items once they arrive, so learn more about the garments on our Team Gear page. In the meantime, you can also order additional merchandise from past years on our Logosoftwear store, which mails items directly to you.

Thanks/Recap From Last Week
This last week we had a club board meeting and August Bagel Brunch. A huge thanks to everyone who made it out, and to the always-awesome Steve Benne of Molto Benne Catering, who puts on the delicious brunch throughout the year!

Tuesday Evening Picnic - 8/22 - 7pm

ALL-NEW Couch To 5K, Round 2 - 8/26 - 9am
The club is putting on a 2nd Couch To 5K that will start this coming Saturday and culminate with the East Bay Pride Run in October. Please invite along friends and share in your networks so we can make this program another huge success!
