Add a selfie or a scenic picture to your Strava activity on either of those days and your workout may be featured on our FaceBook and Instagram pages. To join the club on Strava, go to TalegaRunClub Facebook.
Once gatherings are acceptable again, we will return to our original run club meet-ups every Thursday at 6 PM at Starbucks at the SC Outlets and every Saturday at 7:30 AM at Peet’s Coffee in Talega.
