 GRTC PRESIDENTS NOTE 1.1.17

 

Welcome to 2017. Hope everyone had a great holiday season. The New Year has started out well for GRTC with a successful New Year’s Resolution Run in Mendon Ponds. This year was a beautiful day with dry pavement and fun for all. Our 221 finishers had an excellent run, followed by plenty of good food and conversation. A great way to ring in the new year as always.

 

If you missed this race however due to holiday travel and commitments (we won’t bring up hangovers) remember that we have 2 more races for you to run and enjoy in January. On 1/14 on the west side we have the Pineway Ponds 5 mile race in Spencerport. This has always been a favorite and is run now out of the park’s new and modern lodge. On 1/28 on the east side we have the new Hearnish 5 mile race in Victor. Replacing the previous Powdermill Park race site, we think you will enjoy the new Victor course. It will be based at the updated modern lodge at Victor Municipal Park on Papparone Drive. Come out and try the new route out. Details for both races can be found on our website, and signup links for the freezeroo races and membership are below.

 

And coming up also on 1/28 (the evening of the Hearnish 5 mile race) is the annual GRTC awards banquet. This year we are in a new venue at the Burgandy Basin Inn in Bushnells Basin. Come out and help us welcome in our two new Hall of Fame inductees, Bill Wood and Leo Finucane. There will of course be the awards for RROY series, an update on the club activities, and an appropriate mix of food, drink, fun and fellowship. If you are a regular, come and check out our new location. If you have never been to the banquet before, come and check us out. GRTC’s mission is to facilitate running in the Rochester area, provide racing opportunities and give options for people to meet and network with other runners. The banquet is a great way for you to see old friends and make new contacts in the running community. Maybe you will meet a new runner from your area. The details of the banquet and sign up link are below and on our website. Hope to see you there.
