Our club welcomes new members of all abilities. Read on to find out what we've been up to lately.

SRR's first race of the year is also a great way to celebrate the first weekend of Spring! The course is a mostly flat 5K through Cambridge, from Central Square towards Harvard Square and back, followed by some great craic! If you haven't registered yet you can do so online. Proceeds from the race will benefit several Cambridge charities and youth groups including the JLK Sanfilippo Research Foundation and the Cambridge Rindge and Latin Track Team..
VOLUNTEERS ARE STILL NEEDED for this event! If you can help out please contact Carrie-Anne Dedeo for more information.
