Good Afternoon Striders!

  • Marcus Tumminelli PR’d the 5k at Trail Series this week

If you or anyone you know has run a PR or had a significant accomplishment, please let me know!

There are 2 more races left in the Summer Trail Series program including the popular PR race on August 19th. We’ve been seeing record numbers this year, another 270 runners this past Monday night. We’re also looking for a couple of Striders to step up and take over as co-race directors. Please let myself or a board member know if you are interested.

Tonight is Health and Wellness night at the track. Come check out all of the vendors and get some free Hayward’s Ice Cream afterwards.

Next Tuesday, August 13th is the new Gate City Hayward’s fun run. We had a great showing – over 100 people – last time. Please remember to park across the street from Hayward’s and wear your GCS Red!

Next NHGP Race is the Boot Scootin’ Boogie race in Londonderry on Aug 17th. We’re currently in first place, but we need every point we can get going into the last few races. Even if you think you aren’t fast enough, you might surprise yourself and score points for the club. It’s all in who shows up. Every Runner Counts, Every Point Counts.

Congratulations to the following people who have won a free entry to the Wolf Hollow 10 miler! If you did not win and would like to run, there is a discount code for 10% off for Gate City Members: GCSWH10. For the winners, we’ll be in touch shortly with the code to register.
