The Thursday Night Run
We're bringing the Thursday Night Run back to Excelsior! Join us every Thursday at 6:30 PM.

Go as far and as fast as you want. Everyone is welcome, including walkers. It's not a race, it's an opportunity to meet new people and cover some miles with a group to pull you along.

After the run, we'll gather at one of the fantastic local establishments to raise a glass and toast our local running community.
