Saturday Routes

Saturday Route Information for ORCA Runners and Walkers

Subscribed members will receive a weekly email from Heather Beatty about where to meet for the 8 a.m. start, options for distances and scheduled routes, and where to go afterwards to meet for coffee/breakfast. Runs start at 8:00 a.m. If you are new to the group, let us know who you are so we can help you to find a running buddy or a group that is your pace. If you are interested in becoming an ORCA member, you can sign up online or print a membership form and mail it to us or bring it to a Saturday run a few minutes before 8 a.m.
