Calling All Runners!

July 26, 2019

The Mad River Running Club meets up on Saturday mornings at 7 a.m. at the Waterville Valley Town Square Information Booth. Enjoy an early morning group run with organizer Andrew Hostetler, who says, “We run together, not for speed!”  

Andrew works here in Waterville Valley and is an avid trail runner. Check out his website at Fresh Tracks Racing.  He is also the Race Director for the revived Black Bear Half Marathon and 5K, which is coming right up on Saturday, August 31, in Waterville Valley.

I got a sneak peak at the race medals. They are really cool.
