Fall 2021

Achilles Regular Saturday Workouts take place at 10 am at the Achilles base in Memorial Park.  We are there almost every weekend, with the possible exception of race weekends and holidays or when the park is closed.  No Regular Workout on Race Days, unless otherwise noted. Our Spring Schedule starts in January; our Summer Schedule starts in June.  The posted schedule is subject to change.  Please check back from time to time to see updates.

 

As always, all workouts & activities/races are free.  We do ask that you RSVP for activities so we know in advance how many will be joining us and to make sure we have the needed guides/volunteers

To RSVP or get more information about workouts or events:
