Elvehjem Neighborhood “Wooden Steps Running and Walking Club”

Basic CMYK

The Elvehjem Neighborhood Association Wooden Steps Running and Walking Club has been meeting since December 2010, and during our first year, we logged 1094.99 miles, which kept us stateside, as we ran the equivalent of the distance from Madison to just past Dallas, Texas. In 2012, we headed to the land down under and logged 2,568 miles, equivalent to crossing the continent of Australia from east to west. In 2013, we ventured to South America and ran 3076.58 miles, just over the distance from Caracas, Venezuela, to Santiago, Chile. In 2014, we had our sights set on an African safari, as we hoped to log 4000 miles and cross the continent from north to south, running from Libya to South Africa. As it turns out, we kept reaching and subsequently raising our goal, until we ended the year with 7083.38 miles, equivalent to flying from Madison, Wisconsin, to China! We plan to raise the bar in 2015 and log 8000 miles or more as a team. Check out the schedule below, and make plans to join the club for a run or walk soon!
