    • Tuesdays at 6:30 P.M. – Fun Run / or Mystery Workout. (You never really know what type of fun thing (Yoga for Runners, CrossFit, cross country skiing, holiday light run/walk, etc.) we have planned for you. Nervous?  Don’t worry about it. Your Winter Warrior Guide promises that this will be a fun time for everyone. You never know when we’ll have a local fitness celebrity at the store keeping things exciting for the evening.)
    • Thursdays at 6:30 P.M.Happy Hour Run/Walk. (This is a 3 mile run/walk that is followed by beers at a local pub/brewery. We may have a surprise event on a Friday to help you earn extra points. Are you able to guess what it may be?)
    • Saturdays at 8 A.M.  Carb Run/Walk. (This is a 3 to 6 mile run/walk around Fort Wayne. There is always the option to increase the distance. Why do we call it a Carb Run/Walk? Good question.
