Welcome to 2019! Here is your weekly dose of all things FrontRunners:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
Thank you to John Brown for hosting February's movie night last week.  

Alright team, our first SFFR team race is this Saturday. Wishing everyone the best and I'll see you there. We are still in the beginning of the year so no expectations for anyone to peak. It will be great practice.  

1) First SFFR Race as a TEAM! Chabot Trail 5k Race- February 16 9:15 am
Everyone is welcome to be part of our Cross Country/Road Racing Team. Similar structure to the Trial Run we had last Saturday except everyone will be in our SFFR uniforms and run as one team! All SFFR runners will be recorded for internal purposes, and Top 7 of each division will be recognized again. SFFR photographers will be there to capture every moment. SFFR will warm-up together as a team. 

Team warm up is at 8:30 AM. Please register on your own for the 5k. There isn't a team option yet. This is our chance to build our reputation within the running community.

There will be a google spreadsheet coordinating transportation for anyone needing a ride or who has extra seats in their car. If you have extra seats or in need of a ride, please visit this SPREADSHEET!

Please plan on arriving there around 8:30 am. Our 5k race starts at 9:15 am and we will start our team warm up at 8:30 am. Driving address is ...

17930 Lake Chabot Road
Castro Valley, CA 94546
