New Member Welcome


If you’ve joined in the last year, you’ll want to attend to meet others and learn about how to get the most from your Ridgerunners experience. In 2022, the new member welcome event was held at the Swim Club and hosted by the members of the Board of Directors.  



Our annual holiday party! In 2022, we held the party at the Chattahoochee Tech Conference Center on the Appalachian Campus in Jasper.  We welcomed nationally-renowned comedian Karen Mills, enjoyed holiday treats, and for extra fun, members wore their favorite tree skirt!

Monthly Meetings

Each month during the year—September through April—Ridgerunners meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. The meetings are free for members, but registration is required because seating is limited.
