Downtown 5K

The Downtown 5K is a flat and fast road race right here in Providence. It’s a great tune-up to test your fitness level early in the season. The race is next Sunday 9/16 at 10 am. Register here. Be sure to select “Join a Team” and then pick “Brown Running Club” when prompted. Also, use promo code b845 for a discount on registration. If you’re racing, email joy_jiang@brown.edu to borrow a team uniform.

Team Dinner

Our social-chair, Caroline, will be hosting a team dinner this Saturday at 6pm. The dinner will be potluck style, so let Caroline know if you’re bringing something. (Hint: if you’re on meal plan, you can just fill take-out boxes from the Ratty) Her email is caroline_ribet@brown.edu. PS, you do not have to be racing on Sunday to attend the team dinner.
