Want some RnR?  Who doesn't need some.  Join us for the brand new Roots n Road! Choose the 3 or 5 mile Run/Walk with a combination of roads and trails at the beautiful (hilly) Mendon Ponds Park!  We wanted to create an event that was a perfect taster for those brand new to trail, but ideal for those wanting to go speedy and mix up the terrain.  So join us for some RnR on March 23rd!
