Wednesday Run Options:
Looking for a mid-week group run? We have two great options for you on Wednesdays:
AM Striders meet at 5:45am on Wednesdays at the Caribou Coffee in our shopping center. This is a self-led group that runs 3-5 miles (with the option to tack on more, of course). We welcome ALL paces and ability levels. After the runs, enjoy a cup of coffee with friends! If you are interested in coming out for one of these AM Strider runs, please call 404-467-1010 or e-mail genie.beaver@weststride.com.

NEW FOR 2014: Runs will be hosted at the store for the first 3-4 Wednesdays of the month, but the last Wednesday of each month, we will relocate and meet at Red Brick Brewery!
