Anyone want to own a coffee shop?

It is with deep regret that we announce this piece of news. Our dear friends at Mebane Espress, which has been the MRC’s home base for over a year, have decided to sell their business to be closer to family. We want to thank Maria, Mario and Stefano for always being a welcome location for runners, cyclists, active folks and the community in general. Their support has been phenomenal! We wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Please pass along this information if you know of someone who might be interested in owning a wonderful coffee shop and gelateria!!!

  • You have one runner and one or more occasional runners or run / walkers under one roof
  • The runner never checks their email and their partner wants to know when the parties are being held
  • You want the non-runner to start running and get a discount on the next New Runners’ Program
  • More than one member wants voting privileges
  • You always attend MRC events as a family
  • You like seeing ALL of your names listed in the race results section of the blog.
  • You don’t mind paying the extra five bucks because you got so many discounts this year!
