        features great community support, sentries at each mile calling out times, water

  • Couch to 5K Training - Sundays at 2:30 PM
        Shades Crest Baptist "Couch to 5k" has begun. Come each Sunday at 2:30 PM. Go from
        sitting on your couch to running the April 4 High Country 5k! All adult fitness levels are
