This Weekend's Starting Line

This weekend is full of short distance road races being contested by the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team from Huntsville.

Headlining the weekend is Jon Elmore who will be in Hot-lanta for the Peach Tree Road Race hosted by the Atlanta Track Club.  This race draws more than 50,000 participants each year and according to, is the largest road race in the United States.  Here is a link to that feature article

In Murray, Kentucky, Christy Scott will be racing the Freedom Fest 5km.  This lollipop style course starts and ends at the Primary Care Medical Center in Murray.

In Gladstone, Michigan, Eric Charette will be racing the annual Firecracker 5 Miler.  This looped course runs through the streets of Gladstone and along the Lake Michigan shoreline.  

Back in Huntsville, Alabama, Fleet Feet is a sponsor of the Firecracker 5km, which is certain to draw some team members as well.

Good luck to the entire team in where ever your fleet feet take you this weekend, racing or otherwise!
