Texas Lassos Run/Walk Club
The Run/Walk Club was initiated in February of 2013 and is run by a group of UT Students, the Texas Lassos. The DSACT running club will introduce less experienced runners to the sport and encourage an active lifestyle for all.
Participants meet weekly in the Spring (check calendar for Fall dates as they change) (Saturday's from 10am - 11am) at the St. Edward’s University track for an hour of warm-up activities, walking and jogging around a track, and a cool down period. Participants should bring their running shoes and water. All ages and experience levels of running are welcome. The program is designed to be progressive as the season moves forward, culminating with DSACT 3.2.1 Fun Run in the Spring.
If you are interested in joining the Run/Walk club, don't forget to register by clicking on the RSVP button above.
