Triatomics Club Hosts 2012 Christmas Lights Runs

LATC News:

The Los Alamos Triatomics Club announces the 2012 Christmas Lights Runs.

Here’s an opportunity to check out the Christmas lights and get a little exercise to burn off that extra slice of Thanksgiving pie.

We will run through various Los Alamos neighborhoods to check out their outdoor lights. The routes are mostly on quiet residential streets to avoid the noise and smell of traffic.

Runs are scheduled for every Monday and Wednesday night until Christmas or there are ice patches on the streets.

This year, Monday nights will be a bit shorter and flat (2.3 – 3 miles) and Wednesday nights a bit longer with more hills (4.7 – 6.5).

Once the sidewalks/streets are icy, the Christmas Lights Runs are likely finished for the year so plan to run early or you might miss out.

Non club members are welcome to join us:

• Start time will be 6:15 sharp. Be warmed up and ready to go. 

• Wear something light and/or reflective.

• Wear a headlamp or carry a flashlight, the streets are dark in places and lots of lights make it easier for the cars to spot us.

• Leashed dogs are fine.

• These are fun runs, not competitive or speed/endurance building.

• If it’s snowing we will run. Running at night during an active snow storm is a hoot!

Last minute changes or cancellations will be posted on the and mailed to
