84 Runners

The mission of 84 Runners is to promote health and fitness through running and walking in the communities around Highway 84.  This mission will be accomplished through training runs/walks, events, and races.

Join René Maciel and other walkers, joggers, and runners on the first and third Saturday of every month at 8:00 am in front of the MAC. There is no membership fee. We meet briefly and then run usually 3-4 miles. We run mostly around the church and through the neighborhoods and some access roads. Strollers are welcome.  If you know of any other runners, invite them to come with you. Please click here for more information. For questions: contact René Maciel: rmaciel@firstwoodway.org or call the church office: 254.772.9696
