We want to make you aware that ShoalsTRAC is committed to continuous improvement.  Our goal is to promote running (and good health in general) in our community.  To that end, we want you to know who we are, what we do and the various racing opportunities available.  We hope to be the go-to hub for race promotions, group runs and pictures.  We recognize that we know more about running and less about marketing and promotion.  Fortunately, that is where Julie Oliverius fits in.  She is incredibly gifted in these ways and on September 1, will launch a campaign to improve our website and our Facebook page.  To learn more about Julie, check out her own website — www.julieoliverius.com.  And, she is also a runner.

Certainly, we are very interested to hear from you.  You’ll find the email addresses of our board of directors within our website or just send us a Facebook message.
