SMAC Monday Night Social Run for beginners

New on Mondays! A 35-minute (approx 3 mile) social run starting at 6:30 pm from the intersection (Amherst side) of the Norwottuck Rail Trail and South Maple Street, near the Hampshire Mall in Hadley (where parking is available). This run on an almost flat scenic section of the bike path towards Amherst is aimed at beginning runners -- the run leader will go at the pace of the slowest runner. Faster runners may run ahead and loop back. Everyone's encouraged to wear bright colors, so as to be visible to other users of the trail. If you're unsure of the distance or the pace, please do come along and try it out; don't be shy!
