Jacqueline Hansen to Speak at Banquet & Membership Meeting

Calling all members ... this is a DC Road Runners Club signature event and is family friendly. Again it will be at Maggiano's Little Italy in Friendship Heights, on Sunday, March 5, starting at 6PM. The evening features our annual club awards, elections of a new board of directors, state-of-the-club presentation and guest speaker Jacqueline Hansen.

Jacqueline won her first marathon in 1972, the Boston Marathon in 1973, and set women's world marathon records in 1974 and 1975. As President of the International Runners Committee, she and her group lobbied, cajoled and sued the International Olympic Committee to include women in the 5,000- and 10,000-meter races and in the marathon. She's an accomplished coach, educator, mentor, and a member of the Road Runners Clubs of America Hall of Fame. She's a leader of 261 Fearless, a group that offers education and running opportunities for women to discover their self-worth and potential and make choices to control their lives.

So come on out. Get caught up on all the club is doing, have some fun with your fellow runners while they are all dressed up and of course, VOTE! We will present our annual awards for most outstanding athletes, we will recognize our top coach and volunteer.

You must register in advance. Don't wait, space is limited. Here is the link to register.

In support of Capital Area Food Bank, we will be collecting unopened, low sugar, hot or cold cereal at our Annual Club Banquet Banquet. Each box earns a raffle ticket, or you can buy raffle tickets with cash. Prizes TBD.

 

Next Race: Langley 8K

Our next race is the Langley 8K, on Saturday, February 4th, on a hilly course through the Central Intelligence Agency's backyard. It's the fifth race in the 2022-23 Snowball Series. Sign up now to participate! (Or sign up to volunteer at the race ... please!)
