The Elvehjem Neighborhood Association "Wooden Steps" Running Club has been
meeting since December 2010, and during our first year, we logged 1094.99 miles
, which kept us stateside, as we ran the equivalent of the distance from Madison to just past Dallas, Texas. In 2012, we headed to the land down under and logged 2,568 miles
, equivalent to crossing the continent of Australia from east to west. In 2013, we ventured to South America and ran 3076.58 miles
, just over the distance from Caracas, Venezuela, to Santiago, Chile. Next year, we have our sights set on an African safari, as we hope to log 4000 miles
and cross the continent from north to south, running from Libya to South Africa.
In 2014, we'd also like to encourage walkers to join the fun, so we are in need of a leader to coordinate weekly walks. To volunteer as the walking club leader or find out more information about weekly group runs, contact Running Club Leaders Tom Berg (221-1892) and Tiff Roltgen (513-9433) at email@example.com
. Hope to see you at the wooden steps and on the road!
