“Welcome to Run Club.
The first rule of Run Club is: you always talk about Run Club.
The second rule of Run Club is: you ALWAYS talk about Run Club!
Third rule of Run Club: if someone yells “stop!”, goes limp, or taps out, the run is over.
Fourth rule: EVERYONE gets to run.
Fifth rule: build up your other runners – always.
Sixth rule: the runs are all about fun. No shirt, short-shorts, no problem (proper running shoes required though).
Seventh rule: runs will go on as long as they have to.
And the eighth and final rule: If this is your first time at Run Club, you have to run (but don’t worry, we’ll all run with you!)
