It's barely fall, but I wanted to see what BIG races people had planned for the winter and spring? In an effort to maximize GRC's exposure, to get us training for similar race distances and to enable us to race competitively as a team in the DC area, I am going to toss out a rough schedule from now until May. Please let me know what you're plans are.
First up is VETERANS DAY 10K on November 9th. Who plans on racing this?
The DC race calendar is fairly quiet in the winter but there are two big race:
JINGLE ALL THE WAY 10K - 12/14
USATF XC NATLS - 2/7
This spring, we've got the following:
NATIONAL MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON - 3/21
CHERRY BLOSSOM 10 MILER - 4/5 - my goal is to have a huge GRC effort here!
PIKES PEEK 10K - late April TBD
BROAD STREET 10 MILER ("away meet" in Philly) - 5/3
Please "comment below with your desired race schedule and specifically which of the races above you have an interest in. I will compile a 'uge list and if we have more than one or two GRCers running a race, it makes sense to create a team for that race (when applicable). When we have a team, we have a better presence and the possibility of possible complimentary entries (again, when applicable).
