nOg Running Group: 10/25
The nOg Run Club, which is a social running collaboration put together by the folks at Fleet Feet and Tir Na Nog Pub in downtown Raleigh. They host weekly runs on Monday night through the downtown streets of Raleigh. Wendy, one of the runners from last weeks Thursday group run at Fleet Feet gave me the details. You pay $1 when you sign up, and the give you a little key chain scan card, then every time you take part in the run you scan your card, after you come to 10 runs you get a technical running shirt with the club logo, and after 25 runs you get a Run Club Mug. The run starts at 6pm, but there is a straggler run that starts at 6:30pm, and they have course drawn up for 3, 4, 5, and 6 miles. They even give you small had held laminated maps. After the runs you return to the pub and pay one more dollar and get a buffet pasta dinner. It is an awesome deal! Basically, the only thing that you pay for is your bar tab, which for us will always be minimal because Hiro is allergic to alcohol (Asian Glow) and doesn't want esophageal cancer,
so can anyone say Greg has a life long DD and I rarely drink, so we are talking minimal expense.
