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