Here were are. Another year of epic SRR running and parking lot partying is nearly in the books.
It’s nearly time for the Wintah Challenge! Buckle up, kids. If you thought last year’s run was epic, Bachman Turner Overdrive is here to remind you that you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
When: Sunday, January 7th, 2018 – 11:00 a.m.
Where: Casey's - 173 Broadway, East Somerville
Who: Open to club and non-club members.
The Run: Your beloved Thursday night 4.06 mile course. This year, you will be asked to partake in several skills demonstrations along the course. They will not be announced prior to the start of the run so you will not be able to practice in advance. If this is a problem for you, we will be happy to connect you with Allen Iverson for counseling.
Please note that this is a "fun run", and there will be no official traffic control and minimal course support. Please obey all traffic rules and run safely.
To spare our volunteer course support and unpaid timing company from unsightly frostbite, timing operations will cease at 12:00 pm sharp. If you need more time, please don’t let that stop you from coming out. You may start early or finish late as you wish.
COSTUMES: Costumes are HIGHLY encouraged. Prizes for the best costumes! The options are limitless! I challenge anyone to beat Carrie-Anne's Elaine costume. Come on. Bring it!
Entry Fee: FREE!!!
New Registration Process! To help us expedite and enhance the awards process, please pre-register REGISTER IN ADVANCE. Upon arrival at Casey's we will ask you to check-in at our registration desk to sign the waiver and pick up your number.
Post Race: FREE!!! Enjoy breakfast and a complementary beverage at Casey's. Bring a change of clothes and plan to stay for a while! Silly awards, NFL Division playoff action, and all around good times at Casey's will not disappoint!
Awards: Exciting and random as always!
If you don't plan to run, but still want to be part of the madness, please volunteer. We'll need twelve people for course support and a sweep or two. Please email Julie Holt at email@example.com to help out.
We'll see you there!
