Holiday Relays & Notice of Capital Expenditure vote

Come on out to Washington - Lee High School Track for our annual Holiday Relays. Starting time is 7PM on Wednesday December 14. Happy hour will follow after the relays at Carpool just up the street from the track (21+, don't forget your ID).

As is the tradition, this is a two-person relay. We pair fastest and slowest runners together to make teams so all club members of all abilities should feel welcome. It is a hugely fun event that everyone enjoys. Come on out and get in the holiday spirit. Prizes for fastest teams and best costumes.

The relays take the place of both the Wednesday night and Thursday morning track workouts for the week. We really hope to see many club members out to join in the fun. As always, food will be provided at happy hour.

In conjunction with the relays and as announced at our November Happy Hour, we will also hold a vote of the general membership on a capital expenditure. We would like to purchase a new Chronotrack timing box and two flashpoints at a total cost of $9800. The club has ample reserves in our accounts to afford and pay for this. As background, the DC Road Runners provides race management services that generate revenue for our regular club operations. This is how we provide members with 19 free races each year, training programs, training runs, trained and certified coaches, happy hours, clothing and an overall great running experience. All that for just $25 for individuals or $35 for families. Our Chronotrack timing equipment is essential to putting on high quality races for others and at our own club races. The new 800 series box will replace an older 400 series box in need of repair. The repair costs are sizable, meaning this 8 year old box has reached it’s end of life, further investing in a new 800 series box which will provide more capability and capacity. Per our by-laws, we need a quorum of 50 members to vote on a capital expenditure. Please come to the relays, have fun and give us your vote. We look forward to seeing you there.
