LRC Thursday Spring/Summer Run @ Green Gables, Lake Bloomington
May 4 @ 5:30 pm

Warmer weather and longer days means it’s time to get back to the lake! Run with us at Lake Bloomington from March 16 – November 2!

We run from the park near Green Gables, most starting at 5:30 pm. The 4.37 mile “Loop” course is most popular, especially this early in the season. But the “Dog Days” 5K is popular too, or even the 2 mile route to Carver’s Corner and back. Whatever suits your current training plan. All paces are welcome, including walkers.

Don’t miss the once a month Thirsty Thursday when we’ll provide free draft beer at Green Gables after the run. And, for one lucky runner, a fabulous door prize.

Thirsty Thursdays

  • March 16
  • April 6 – The new race directors of the Lake Run, Julie Whittenburg and Caitlin Harrison, will be present to accept votes and suggestions for the beers that will be served after the Lake Run!
