The Templeton Snowshoe Race that has been rescheduled to this Saturday 2/28 has been cancelled. YES- there is plenty of snow- but its in the wrong places! The road going into the Fernald School is extremely narrow, and there is no parking available at the Farmstand
OK- so WHO is ready for Spring?
The brutal cold morning runs, competing for space with cars and plows, slipping on the snow and ice- it just hasn't been easy. To top it off- you train and races are postponed or even cancelled!
The 8 feet tall snow banks WILL melt, and slowly but surely the brown and white snow will give way to brown and maybe green grass!
We have the solution to the winter doldrums- March 15th we have our Shamrocks On The Rocks 5K race from On The Rocks Pub on the Lake Whalom lakefront. Spring officially begins 5 days after that.
It is also time for our annual Devens Series of Races on Wednesday nights in April and May. We should have additional information soon as to time and dates.
Till then- Happy Dreadmill!!!
Due to LACK of Pavement- we are forced to cancel Donnelly's Tavern for the 2015 Winter Series.
Snowshoe Race scheduled for Saturday in Baldwinville 2/14 has been moved to 2/28
Merrimac 7 Miles scheduled for Sunday 2/15 is now moved to 3/22.

Think Snow!!!(or NOT!)
It seems as though Mother Nature and Old Man Winter have had a blind date and given us a nightmare.
We are postponing this Sundays Donnellys Tavern 5 Mile Race until February 22nd at 1 PM. This being done for two reasons- the first being the snow we are scheduled to get this weekend, and second- and more important- the high snowbanks and the narrow roads coupled with the fact that both cars and runners are competing for the same space!
PLEASE pass the word to your fellow runner!
