Hi Hard Core Runners Club,

I go to Davis High School. In my health class, we were asked to raise awareness of running safety in the area.

So what I’m doing is asking running websites to share safety tips.

It's awesome that you promote health and fitness in the community through running. I think runners (and even walkers) of all ages, standards and abilities could benefit greatly from the many running opportunities and events that you offer in your club.

As you no doubt value safety, it might be nice if you could post safety resources on your website.

A good one I found that I think could be helpful is https://www.dietspotlight.com/benefits-of-running/ - list of safety tips, running benefits, resources.



"Join runners at the Franklin Park track, 
6pm for a 1-hour social run mixed with a little fartlek. Runners of all paces are welcome! Look for the HCR yellow. Check our Facebook Page for weekly details.

The main objectives of the club are to:

The club publishes a monthly newsletter with results of races, club business meeting minutes, training tips, local race calendars and various other subjects related to running.

The club sponsors and puts on the Frosty Four Miler Race in February, the Yakima River Canyon Marathon in April, the Clear Lake Memorial Races (5 Miles & 1/2 Marathon) in June, the Grey Rock Trail Runs (50K, 25K & 12K) in July, the Sun City Marathon & 5K Race in October and the Winter Race Series in December-January, Summer XC Series in June to August. The club co-participates with the Junior Gap to Gap and Gap to Gap in June at the Yakima Greenway..

Several 'special' non racing event runs are held during the year - Halloween Run, Turkey Trot, Christmas Light Tour, New Year Resolution Run and Summer Full Moon Run.
