Race calendar

Weekly group runs--New schedule!

Join us for our weekly club runs every Tuesday and Thursday evening!  Here is our schedule for July through October, 2023:

Tuesdays and Thursday evenings:

  • Location: Rahilly Park in Merced, CA
  • Time: 5:30 PM
  • Distance: 5 miles (you may run more or less if you wish), on the Rascal Creek Bike Path, with no traffic.  There are water and poorly maintained bathrooms at Rahilly Park, but no water along the path.

Running schedule for the rest of the year:
On Tuesdays in November through March, we meet at the track at Merced College Stadium 76 to run on the track.  We switch to running at the stadium because it is too dark to run at Rahilly Park during the late fall and winter.  The outer lanes of the track are open to walkers.   Bathrooms are available nearby.  Parking is by Permit Only.  We park right near the stadium.  Day passes may be purchased from Ticket Dispensers for $2.00 a day.

During September and October we move our Thursday night runs to Rahilly Park, where we hold our series of Fall Fun Runs.

Monthly club meeting

Join us for our monthly club meeting at Me-n-Ed's Pizzeria on the third Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 PM.
