Running Routes – 3/29

SPRING FIT ~ Possum Trot & Reed Park

  • All participants need to arrive at TxDOT ready to roll no later than 7:00 AM. There will be routes printed but please bring a plastic bag to carry your directions. We have fewer coaches leading groups this season so it is VERY important for everyone to have directions with them.
  • All participants need to complete the attendance sheet from your coach this Saturday.
  • There is water and Gatorade out on the course so look for a cooler when indicated on the route.
  • If you are running or walking longer than 90 minutes – please bring other forms of nutrition (gu’s, shot blocks, beans, salt pills, etc.) and carry a water bottle.  Upon returning to TxDOT we have water and Gatorade for you. Coaches will lead stretches
