We had our monthly meeting at Wursthaus on Monday, June 2 and discussed some important upcoming events.

  • VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Please CLICK HERE and select “Volunteer.”  We will need help with every aspect of the race, including packet stuffing, packet pickup, and race day activities. Volunteers will get an awesome shirt and backpack, along with a Tervis tumbler!! Swag for the volunteers – you can't beat that!
  • NOTE – You can still race even if you volunteer.  There are many volunteer opportunities that will allow you to race, including packet stuffing, packet pickup, and clean up.
  • Packet stuffing will be on Tuesday, July 1 at the Lake Jackson Intermediate Band Hall at 6pm.
  • Packet Pickup will be on Thursday, July 3 at the Wursthaus from 6pm-8pm.

National Running Day – Wednesday, June 4
  • Meet at 7pm at the Brazosport College Track to show your support for National Running Day.  The weekly LJFAT track workout will be moved to this time and location.  You can do the track workout or take a break from speedwork and just run!

  • Meet at the parking lot at the corner of Abner Jackson and Plantation for loops on Lake Road.  This is a group workout for all levels!  Join us TONIGHT at 6:30!
Weekly Group Swim – Mondays at 6:30pm
  • Beginning next Monday (June 9), we will be doing an informal group swim at Mammoth Lake.  The cost per swimmer is $8, but we are looking into getting a group discount if enough people attend regularly.  Stay updated on this and other news on our Facebook page.
Sylvan Beach Triathlon – Tri Club Challenge
  • June 15 is the Sylvan Beach Triathlon.  If you sign up for this as an LJFAT member, you will be racing for money for our club! You will still compete individually, but results for all club members will be used to determine fastest clubs.
