PRTC Weekly: 01/30/2017 Housekeeping and More


Some housekeeping this week. The next season quickly approaches, so it’s a good time to think about signing up for upcoming races. Early registration discounts abound and having some dates on the calendar is always good motivation!

First on the Grand Prix this year is the Frostbite Five Miler. Bibs currently cost $35, but they will jump to $40 soon. The race is capped at 1,500 people. We hope everyone can sign up soon so we can all participate and get the discount. Frostbite is a great early season race. It also features a scrumptious post-race buffet. Not one to miss!

On another note, we’re working to hand out our NEW men and women’s uniforms. We’ll aim to distribute to those racing Frostbite first, but are also able to hand out to everyone coming to the workouts and long-runs. For members attending these sessions, let us know what size you’d like and we’ll get a uniform to you.

Reminder: It’s also a good time to renew USATF/Club membership. Many us lapsed on January 1st and we’ll need to get everyone up to date for scoring in the Grand Prix and other events.
