Here is the May June Pacer!

COVID-19 Developments

The ARRC Board has been evaluating the ongoing changes and developments with regard to the COVID-19 virus. The health and safety of our community, participants and volunteers come first. To adhere to the guidance of the CDC and the Indiana State Department of Health, we cancelled the Thursday preseason races in April and the May points races. The June 4th race is cancelled. We have not set a date for the Thursday Points Races to begin. We still have hope that we will be able to have a shortened Thursday Race Season.

The White River Run has been postponed until September 5, 2020
.

The Roady Racers, kids fun run has been cancelled for May and June 2. We have not set a date for Roady races to begin.


We will continue to monitor the situation to determine if additional changes are needed. Madison County residents may visit https://www.madcohealth.org/coronavirus for updated local and state developments and guidance. It contains links to the Governor's Stay-at-Home order, the local travel advisory, press releases and ways you can help!

Stay Connected

Geoff Ginther, our Club Vice President, created a Strava Club for the Anderson Road Runners. Join the Club and you can compare distances and run segments with your friends. I had heard about Strava before, but I never signed up for it. I felt my watch gave me enough info. I joined the new Strava Club, and easily connected it to my Garmin Connect data. My information is automatically synched. I don't have to do any extra work. Strava does allow workouts to be manually entered, but I have not tried that. I highly recommend trying Strava. You can stay connected while staying isolated.
