Time:  5:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Location:  Water Street Brewery – Grafton

Definition of Tradition: “A belief or behavior passed down within a group or society reinforcing values.”  The Run Ozaukee Thanksgiving Gathering is just that.  This is our annual opportunity to reflect over the training, relive the highs and loves of races, and  say Thank You to one another for the support provided during a year of what we do…  Run.

While our meeting together the Tuesday of Thanksgiving week has become a tradition, we will now be gathering at Water Street Brewery in Grafton, WI, with a reserved table section beginning at 5:00 PM.  Please RSVP to Doug Temple if you are coming or not and your approximate arrival so we can keep an eye out for you.

As in the past, this is a BYOC Event (Bring Your Own Cash/Credit Card) to buy drinks for yourself or others. 

We hope to see you on the 26th!

Ever watch the NFL on TV and roll your eyes at the fact that so many players feel the need to introduce themselves and their college by accented “THE” really obnoxiously?  Me too…but it is way cooler, if we do it, and it’s talking about running 30 miles together, as a team, right?

Anticipation is building for the capstone event of the year, our very own THE Run Ozaukee! Mark your calendars now:
