Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

BIRCHWOOD LAKES ST PADDYS DAY 5K HASH RUN/FUN RUN

Come and celebrate St. Patty’s day with a family fun Hash Run.   

Birchwood lakes will be hosting a St. Patty’s day 5K Hash run/Fun run- March 17th, 2018.

There will be a long 5k distance and a short 2k distance for beginner runners. The distance will vary based on how many false trails you incur.

The general idea of a HASH run is: the “hare”  sets a trail (marked by clumps of flour and chalk)  for the “hounds” to follow. The hash run follows an unpredictable cross-country trail laid with simple trail-marks showing the way.  A crafty hare will set “false trails,” trying to foul-up the Front Runners in the group, thus allowing the pack the opportunity to catch up. To make sure that the group stays together, harriers yell “ON-ON” when they see a trail-mark and are heading in the right direction.     The “hounds” follow the trail laid by the “hare” with the ultimate goal of reaching the refreshment at the end.

Hashing has been around since the 1930’s, different hash clubs have different traditions. Drinking, singing,  and other archaic diversions have been known to occur on the hash.  Fasten your seat-belts – you never know where a hash trail will take you. 

So come out and explore the community of Birchwood and join us for one of the most fun runs you can imagine.    

Space is limited to the first 250 registrants. Cost is $25 for adults and children.    All participants will receive a t-shirt and refreshments at the end of the run.
