Boston Marathon Bibs!

The club has received 3 invitational bibs for the Boston Marathon. The details were mostly finalized at last week’s executive board meeting. Keep an eye to your email for the submission form. It should be released around May 26th. As in prior years, the more active you are within the club – racing, volunteering, showing up at team activities – the more likely you are to win one of these coveted bibs. Plenty of volunteering opportunities coming up soon! Volunteering also helps satisfy one of the requirements for race reimbursement as races start coming back around.

Outdoor Track! Tonight and every Wednesday night thru the summer!

Track is back! We had a good showing last night at the return of outdoor track. We’re currently meeting at the field near the intersection of Sargents Ave and Manchester St in Nashua. We do have the approval to move to a school track in Hollis in about a month, but are currently finalizing that. We start announcements at 6pm and then the coaches take over from there. See you at track tonight!
