Want to be FITTER or FASTER or STRONGER In 2024? Or maybe most importantly, have even more FUN with your running and walking?

Share with us which of the above you want to focus on in 2024 along with a couple specific things you want to incorporate into your fitness routine to successfully reach your goal. (Please share with us by emailing Runners@Fairhavenrunners.com.)

  • Just for sharing a goal, you’ll be in the drawing for a free pair of Brooks shoes.
  • We’ll check in with you at the end of the year to see how it went. If you attained your goal, you’ll be entered in the drawing for a pair of Brooks shoes.
  • Everyone who follows through with their 2024 goal will be awarded a prize from Brooks.
