Please let Mark Furler and Brandyn Naro know if you sign up. Hope to see everyone out there!

This coming Monday night will be the annual meeting of the membership. A chance to meet fellow club members, hear the status of the club – with a review of last year and this years’ upcoming plans, and also discuss new business. Apps served starting at 6:30 and the meeting will start at 7pm. https://www.facebook.com/events/181945723026935/

Hello Striders!

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

The Annual Awards dinner is this Saturday Jan 25th! The deadline to signup has passed. Looking forward to honoring some great performances from 2019 this weekend.

We will once again have a bus heading down for the Boston Marathon. You can reserve your spot by paying $65 / seat ($75 after Feb 15th) to Dan Dugan.

There is still PLENTY of room to come join us at indoor track on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please fill out the waivers and sign up form from here: http://gatecity.org/indoor-track-workouts/ and bring them and a check to the track and you’re in! Lots of great workouts to get you ready to kick butt into the spring season! A night by night option is available. $10 per night as long as there is capacity. First come, first served with precedence to anyone who has signed up for the entire workout. You’ll still need to fill out the waivers but bring exact cash or a check made out to the Gate City Striders and check in with the coaches to pay and get the wristband. The competitive night is similar to our outdoor track workouts. Whether you are training for a 5k,10k, half or full, there’s a workout prescribed for that night.
