he Atomic City Road Runners Club is a family-friendly walking and running club that meets every Tuesday from April through October for a pace run in which members predict their own times. Anyone can choose to walk or run a mile or three miles, and the slowest walker can be the winner if their finish time is closest to their expected time.
