The BLT Runners is a running club for residents and friends of the communities of Beechville, Lakeside, Timberlea (BLT) and surrounding areas. Our members range from learn-to-run/beginner to intermediate/recreational to experienced/developed. The club was created in June 2016 and incorporated as a non-profit society in September 2016. Our official name is the Beechville Lakeside Timberlea Running Club. We go by BLT Runners for short.
The community of BLT is blessed with access to great trails. We have the Beechville, Lakeside, Timberlea (BLT) Trail, a gravel trail from the Beechville Industrial Park to Hubley. We also have the Chain of Lakes Trail, a paved trail from Beechville Industrial Park to Joseph Howe Drive. The Chain of Lakes Trail is cleared during the winter making it a great year round route for runners.
We suggest becoming a member of our club before participating in any of our activities. Membership is free.
We hold a weekly group run on Monday nights (MONRUN) and also offer speed workouts and other group activities.
