Poker Run

The Poker Run takes place on a Saturday (TBD) every spring. Participants run to designated local merchants’ establishments to collect playing cards.  The best poker hand collected in the allotted time wins a bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Prediction Run/Walk/Bike

This November event rallies participants for a good workout, and a good cause: collecting non–perishable food items for a Golden Calvary Food Shelf.  Runners, walkers and bikers guess how long it will take to complete a 4 mile run/walk or a 10 mile bike ride without the use of any timing device.  The participant closest to his/her predicted time wins. The 2014 Prediction Run is still in the planning stages.  Check back for updates on date and time.   Download our informational flyer FRCC Prediction Run for more information. NO pre-registration required.

Relay Team

FRCC had a relay team in the Wild West Relay for the past two years.  Next years relay events have not been planned.  If you are interested in joining a relay team contact Bob Weber at for more details.
