Hugh Jascourt 4M Race Cancelled

Many thanks to all the came out to try and make a great Saturday night race out of our Hugh Jascourt 4M. We made it to the starting line but mother nature had other plans. We cancelled the race due to severe thunder and lightning as conditions were unsafe. We tried to wait it out but it never really cleared. We will make every attempt to reschedule the race if a date can be found and a permit can be obtained. Details will be posted here on this page and our club Facebook page.

June Runner Spotlight!

June's runner spotlight is Ted Cochrane. Ted joined the club in 1975. He recently got 2nd in his age group in the Snowball Series, and he volunteers at almost every event, including, most notably, the water stop for the Rock n Roll marathon when we weren't provided with supplies until moments before the race start... Ted and his volunteers still managed to pull it together and support all of the runners at mile 3! Find out more about Ted by reading the rest of his interview here.
