Events and Meetings
In the summer months, the club meets weekly every Tuesday evening for "running" meetings. Since 2013, this is held at the Howe-Ross Pond, in a disused end of one of Tomlinson's quarries. A group of members also participates in a Wednesday evening run at Brown's Inlet in the Glebe neighborhood. The club also participates in a variety of community events throughout the summer, in locations that are more accessible to the public.
Our 2022 calendar of community events is expected to include these great activities.
