F3 Dads Slack Channel

Now there is a Slack channel for organizing impromptu #F3Dads events and for communicating organized events once the summer rolls around. Join the SOB Slack and then the #f3dads channel. The goal is one impromptu F3 Dads event each month and then weekly events during the summer. Join us.

Workout Safety and Local Rules

Lights and/or reflectives that can be seen from 500 feet when hit by headlights are needed by runners in the roads of Charlotte in the dark. As we note repeatedly in our disclaimer, F3, the workout Q, nor the facility are responsible for your personal safety. You, having chosen to follow the suggestions of the workout Q, are solely responsible for your personal safety. That being said, you are also responsible for choosing to comply with municipal codes.  Bottom line is, please do all you can to keep yourself safe. Reflective gear helps reduce the chance of being struck by a car. Sounds like a good idea any way you look at it. Also, please consider buying a RoadID. In an emergency, the men around you need to be able to contact your family.  They are on sale here:  Road ID - World Leaders in Runner ID, Cycling ID & Medical ID Tags

Be safe men

F3 Darby Challenge

Think you can run 565 miles #notanotherBRRx2? What if you had a month #notovernight? What if you could do it on a bike #gears? Want to try help those that have deployed more times in the past 15 years than any other unit #tipofthespear? Then welcome to the F3 Darby Challenge.

Run Ranger Run #R3, launching again in Feb 2017, is GallantFew’s annual fundraiser that allows us to do the work we do with helping veterans transition from active duty to civilian life. F3 Nation has proven time and again the strength that a group of #HIMs pushing in the same direction can have #meanmeanstride. The F3 Darby Challenge is our way of contributing to #R3 to create a little bit of competition between F3 regions. The team that raises the most funds, and completes the 565 miles, will receive a one-of-a-kind coin, never to be made again. Join the F3 Team!

There are 3 ways to participate:
  1. Join the F3 Nation team. Register at There are currently 8spots left on the team. Don’t make Darby and Coop Dog do all 565 miles by themselves #Icantfeelmyquads
  2. Form your own Team: Think you can do more than the F3 Nation team? Form your own team in your region or sub-region. Use your BRR or Palmetto 200 team #yourealreadyrunning. Team with the most money donated will be recognized by a one-of-a-kind F3/Ranger challenge coin!
  3. Donate to a team. Whether it’s the Nation team or one of the regional teams that you support the funds all go to the same great cause. If you are interested in donating go here RunRangerRun2017 and make sure to select your team.
