  1. Thank you for sharing info about Fort Myers Track Club's upcoming events; however, there are a few corrections that need to be made. First, the 15K at Verandah is listed twice. It is correctly listed on November 1st, but should be deleted on October 25th. Also, the River Run on December 6th includes a 10K and 2-mile walk, but not at 5K. Thank you!

  2. Thanks! I corrected the errots.
