Events and Meetings

In the summer months, the club meets weekly every Tuesday evening for "running" meetings. As of 2013, this is held at the Howe-Ross Pond, in a disused end of one of Tomlinson's quarries. A group of members also participates in a Wednesday evening run at Brown's Inlet in the Glebe neighborhood. The club also participates in a variety of community events throughout the summer, in locations that are more accessible to the public.

Our 2020 calendar of community events is expected to include these great activities.

Come down and see us, every Tuesday, in the afternoon and early evening. Retired members tend to show up around 15:00. If the weather's bad, or we're not there, we're probably at Tim Horton's near Greenbank and Hunt Club.
