PRTC Weekly: 04/03/2017 Rev Run Registration, Race Results and More

Valley Forge Rev Run 5 Miler

PRTC is in the midst of a tight contest in the Grand Prix Challenge. We currently hold a slim advantage over Pike Creek Valley Running Club. The third race in the series is approaching quickly and registration is open. We hope everyone is able to join us at the Valley Forge Revolutionary Run 5 Miler on April 23rd (8:30 AM).
This race is well-placed as a final Broad Street tune up and it’s always fun to visit the historical Valley Forge Park. Importantly, a $10 post-race brunch at McKenzie’s Brew House is offered to all runners.
Note: Today is the last day of registration for a guaranteed t-shirt. Sign up here!

Race Results

Club members competed in no less than 4 races this past weekend! Here are just a few highlights:
Paul won coveted Phillies tickets (he’s a Phanatic…) and an autographed Louisville Slugger (no word on which player yet) for his first place finish and Nabil took 2 seconds off his 5k PR at the Phillies Charity 5k.
Chris Mateer stepped on the track to get a 10k in for some great Broad Street prep work at Widener’s Danny Curran Invitational. Chris Naimoli, of Bryn Mawr Running Co., competed here as well. He impressed in the 5k with a 15:18!
We were well represented at the Hot Chocolate 15k on West River Drive. Sean Clark showed continued strength as he placed 2nd overall with a time of 49:12.  Sam took home the gold(en ticket) with her first place result (and of course some chocolate). Kylie joined on the podium with her 2nd place finish and Dynise marked another 2017 PR (by 1:30!) and took 2nd in her age group.
In Washington D.C., Catherine and Jamie took on the city’s classic 10 mile Cherry Blossom race with good results. This is an early preview of the 10 mile distance for both as they’re each registered for Broad St. Both landed just around the hour mark with Catherine at 1:00:58 and Jamie crossing the line in 1:01:39. Each placed well and we hoped enjoyed the Cherry Blossoms!
