August 2021 President’s Letter

Let’s face it. You HAVE to love summer if you are a runner. This is the best time to get out and enjoy upstate New York. Several successful GRTC events have taken place already and we are looking forward to more in the future. Our annual “Spring” Running Clinic in Fairport finished in early July and was a great time for all. As a sequel we start this Wednesday with our first “fall” running clinic. Details are below but we are offering this time (for the first time) for anyone who is on the fence to come the first night free and check it out. If you like what you see, you can then sign up for the remaining weeks. Come on and join us in Fairport. What have you got to lose! And think of what you have to gain.
