The easiest way to get faster is to inject human growth hormones into your body. The next best way is to train naturally and consistently and meeting us for workouts every Wednesday evening! We meet at the Garfield HS track and we'll start running at 6:30. Keep an eye on our Facebook or Twitter for any changes in the schedule. Workouts are free and open to standing club members. Non members are welcome to come give the workouts a trial run.

Meet us each Sunday 7:30am at Cougar Mountain's Sky Country Trailhead or 9:00am at Cougar Mountain's Red Town Trailhead for fun on the trails.
