RunAbout Sports Pub Runs will take place every Wednesday all year at 6pm. Earn the 100 Mile shirt and fame with your picture on our wall when you accumulate 100 miles.  200 miles earns the 200 mile glass! Once in awhile, we also have Wednesday Hills where you earn .50 miles for every hill you do, as well as periodic scavenger hunts for prizes. There is no cost so come join the fun!
