First Run is Tuesday May 3

Finally, time to start another Summer Swing season! Looking forward to seeing all of you again in a few weeks. This year we will have 14 runs, beginning on May 3rd and finishing up on August 2. The links to the right have been updated so you can see the Summer Swing details, registration form (you can also register on-site before the run), concert schedule, map, and results from the last 3 years. My contact information is there as well, so if you have any questions please give me a call at 334-524-5021 (cell) or shoot an email to me at For those of you who are new to the Summer Swing series, it's for runners or walkers of all skill levels - beginners to seasoned runners - any age. We started out with a few friends running together in 2004, and will be celebrating our 13th year (can you believe that?). It's casual enough to be a low-key learning experience for new runners - but still plenty of competition for those who want to work on improving their times. It's a marked, timed course run through quiet neighborhoods. Results are tracked each week on this blog site, if you are interested in seeing your progress over the summer. Last summer we averaged about 35 to 50 runners on a given Tuesday evening, of all skill levels. It's low cost - $10 for the whole 14 week series, or pay as you go at $1 per race. 18 and under, no charge. Still not sure if you want to bite the bullet? Come for a week or two and see what you think. I'm pretty sure you will be back. And, don't forget the free concerts in the park at 7pm. The concert schedule is in a link on the right side of the page. Come join us this summer, make new friends, and improve your fitness. Can't beat that. See you soon! Doug
