July 4th Freedom Run in Downtown Chattanooga

So, we’ve come up with an event for this summer that we believe will be a lot of fun for our church family (and really, anybody who would like to join us!). We’re going to host a July 4th 5k and 10k run that we’re calling The Gathering Freedom Run.  It’s obviously related to Independence Day, but we hope to be able to talk with people about our real focus which is true freedom in Christ. We’ll end at Coolidge Park for a picnic together, so if you don’t run, plan on coming to that anyway. 

We will officially announce this with all the details later this week, but I needed to tell you now because one of our accomplished resident distance runners, Meredith Zinke, has put together a couple of training plans that will get you in shape and ready to run the distance you choose by July 4th. She put this together last week, which is why it starts on the 10th, but you can jump in now and do fine. So pick the one you like and get moving, and watch for more details here or on The Gathering website and Facebook page. Hope you will join us!  I’m planning on the 10k, so come run with me!

We’ll have these as downloadable PDFs available in the next day or so.
