FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FLASH: The Georgetown Running Company is sending a squad of its best and brightest to do battle at the USATF Cross Country Club Championships this Saturday at McAlpine Creel Park in Charlotte, NC. "This is the best team we've ever sent anywhere", noted one GRCer.

Jerry Alexander, who coaches a handful of the guys going on the trip notes, "While we're not making club nationals a priority, and our runners are training through the race, we should make a very solid showing in Charlotte. Joe Wiegner and Paul Guevera look to be our top 2 men, as both of them have been running excellent workouts and look sharp.
"Ryan Hanson has also looked great in workouts but this distance is at the outside of Ryan's range, and he's looking forward to running fast in the spring at 5000 meters on the track. Sam Luff is rounding into shape and is capable of running well on Saturday. Jerry Greenlaw has been running very high mileage in anticipation of his marathon debut in 2011 and lacks race sharpness right now, but he will be in the mix for top 3 on our squad. When fit, Karl Dusen is our clear number one runner, and while Karl is still recovering from a persistent illness and will not be at full throttle, we still expect him to be a scoring member of our team. And Dave Burnham's PRs demonstrate that when fit, he will be a major factor for GRC in the future, and I look forward to seeing him regain race fitness in the spring."
