Bridge Run with Runners Depot
Thursday, April 26th @ 6:30PM
1489 SE 17th St, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316

Front Runners will join in this weekly event. Having trouble getting through your speed workouts in this summer Florida heat? Try a new speed session disguised as bridge running. 

One benefit of uphill running training is that the muscles you use to overcome hills are the same ones you use for sprinting. As you build strength in uphill running, you also get faster. In other words, running the incline improves your speed by building strength and power and you run faster on flat ground. You'll also burn more calories!

Dining Schedule

By Tim Taylor, Dining Coordinator

We lost one of our discount dining venues when they closed - Flash Fire Pizza.  Sad to see them close their doors.  When one door closes, another TWO open. The restaurant next door - Agave has stepped up and is giving us a 10% discount on Wednesday nights.   Thanks to Coco for working his social network to hook us up! Also Rubio's Coastal Grill (next to Giardinos Salads) will now offer a 10% discount after our run/walk.

Please continue to suggest post run venues. Email your suggestions to Generally they should be located between Oakland Park Blvd and Broward Blvd and East of Andrews Ave.  A varied menu for our vegetarian members as well as ample parking with open seating areas or outside dining is also a required consideration. They also need to be able to handle a group of 12 - 24 people arriving together.
