Club plans cross-country run/walk
The Argonne Running Club will hold its annual Tom Braid Memorial Cross Country Run Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at noon. All are welcome to take part in the 3.5-mile run and 1.5-mile walk.
The event will start at Building 435 (just to the east of Building 446) on the south side of the Advanced Photon Source ring. All participants will receive a voucher for 100 Virgin Pulse points, and there will be a raffle and refreshments at the finish.
Both the run and walk courses will primarily be on trails which could be muddy; there could be standing water, fallen tree branches, twigs, and other debris, wearing your best shoes is not recommended. The course will be marked for easy navigation.
Tom Braid was a longtime member of the Argonne Running Club who hailed from Ireland and Scotland. He was an avid runner who grew up running cross-country over farmlands, fields and hills. The club holds this cross-country event each year in his honor.
