Our plan is to conduct our 2021 Thursday Races according to our pre-COVID schedule.

The 2021 Thursday Night pre-season races began on Thursday April 1st!! Runners start at 6:00 p.m. Walkers start at 5:30 p.m.

Post-season, non-points runs: On October 7th we'll run a loop around Shadyside in the clockwise direction, opposite of what we did all year. Everyone can unwind. On October 14th, we'll have a prediction race. You predict the time you will finish a lap. Watches and phones are not allowed. On October 21, 28 and November 4th, we'll move to Mounds State Park to preview the Run the Mounds Race courses. Meet at the Woodland Shelter and stick around after the run for some food. Bring your own beverages.

The Requirements for Thursday Night Points Races:

In order to receive points you must be a current member of the Anderson Road Runners. The minimum number of races required to earn awards, well be determined after the season starts. For High School age members (generally 15-18 years old) the official 2020 season will start June 3rd and end July 29th (dates are subject to change due to school schedules). There will be no race July 2nd. High School age members will only earn points from June 3rd to July 29th. High School age members only need to run 4 of the 7 races during their season to qualify for awards.

Age Groups: Men and Women 10 & under, 11-12, 13-14, 15-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89, 90-94, 95-100, heavyweight 190+ lbs. (Men Only). Age group will be determined by the runner's age on May 1, 2019.

ARRC Kids Program: (One-Mile Fun Run - ages 12 and under)

ARRC members will direct the Fun Run for our children. Children are the future of running and of our club. If you or a member of your family would be willing to assist Frank, please contact any officer at the race. The first Children's run is scheduled for May 18th. The first run will be for practice, training and getting many people registered. Start time is 6:00 p.m.

This program is free, but you are required to fill out a registration form. We prefer you to sign up through this link: Roady Fun Run. The Anderson Road Runners Club is required to carry insurance for all of our organized races. This means we need to have parents sign the waiver. It is also helpful for new families to sign up before Tuesday so we can download any new names and get them printed on each weeks spreadsheets to record their times.  This saves time on Tuesdays before the races. The registration forms will be available before the the Roady fun runs if necessary.

Go to the 'We are Roady' facebook page for the most up-to-date information, including weather cancellations.

Weekly Sponsors: Due to COVID-19 concerns, we will not be providing beverages, treats or cookouts for either the Thursday races or the Roady Fun Runs. Please bring your own hydration and nutrition. We will monitor the COVID-19 guidelines throughout the season to determine what we can safely provide. The club will again be seeking sponsors for weekly awards / treats. This applies to both the 2.628 mile races and the children's one mile run. We will have a cook out the third Thursday of every month from May to September. It will start after the Thursday race.

Please contact the race directors for more details.

Anyone who would like to make contributions for the children's run should contact one of the officers. Contributions can be in the form of treats, awards or cash support for these items.
