GRC Summer Program

Most of you have already heard about our team's summer program for elite high school runners.  This program is being spearheaded by Coach Jerry and hopes to achieve a few goals:
  • Raise money for the team
  • Help compensate Coach Jerry for his help for our team
  • Mentor promising high school runners as they begin to think about running in college
  • Keep Wiggy occupied while school is out for summer
This program will consist of high school runners attending our weekly workouts at BCCHS to be coached by Jerry, and give them the opportunity to learn from our top runners about running in college, what coaches look for, how to find the right college program, how to balance work and running, etc.  The team will split the proceeds with Jerry, and this will be a valuable supplemental income to help outfit the rest of the team in warm ups, defray travel expenses for out-of-town races, and cover entry fees for our team members.  This is why it is vital that you all help to promote this program to your local HS contacts.  For more information on the program, visit the summer program page of GRCrunning.com.  For more information on how you can help, comment below or email Coach Jerry at coach.jerry@live.com
