Track is Back

Track has started up again this year.  It is a new program from our coordinators Linda and Joe who tailor the training to each runner.  Come on out and work on that pace.  Training takes place at the new Kiwanis track at Georgetown District High School (70 Guelph Street) every Tuesday at 7:00 pm until October.  Hope to see you there.

Booty Call!

Hello Friends,

If the words “nice butt” are written on your journals of history, then maybe it’s time you became a stairmaster!

Joe & friends have organized a stair climbing evening every Tuesday at The Sands condo. Especially important for anyone on the Sulphur Springs relay team!

Meet up at 7 pm (front entrance) where Joe will let you into the building. Don’t be late: he’ll only wait till 7:10!  A brief warm-up run/jog/walk recommended.

Wrinkles may add character, but dimples are for oranges.

The President’s Welcome to the G’town Runners 2012

The loneliness of the long distance runner is a myth that is generally malicious and unfounded. Joining a running club is an idea that is too often rejected based in part on this myth and in part on the idea that ‘the whole business will hurt too much’. True improvement will, at times, require desperate determination, but the effort also makes one grateful to every sense. Whether a novice runner wincing at the thought of trundling around the block, or an experienced runner who would like to improve, the community of a club will help.

This club has a history reaching back to 1983 when it was formed in response to the need for a local running track. Since then it has contributed to helping hundreds of runners meet their personal goals – John competing in triathlons at the international level, Joe flying through 500 marathons, Kirsten training for her first Ironman and Sandra training for her first half. The obvious point is that with focus , encouragement and support you too will soon be adding your piece to our collective living history.

To consolidate your running success the club offers Sunday runs in the hills of Halton and Tuesday track directed by Jim at the high school. From this association groups of members enter races both internationally grand and rewardingly local. Boston, Around The Bay and, Spring into Motion await.

The annual climax for the G’town Runners season, however, is our own 10K plus race, the December Egg Nog Jog ably directed this year by Duncan and Mauro. Here you can complete all your childhood dreams by becoming a volunteer parking attendant , an emcee or even a rock star! Each year the effort of the club and other volunteers has allowed us to donate in excess of $5000 to local charities.

So, welcome again to running with us. May the road in front of you be smooth and may you be eager for the hopeful promise of the day.

Yours in friendship,
Dave
